Mike Gordon (1948 - 2017) was a pioneer of deductive theorem proving and formal hardware verification. An inspirational mentor to generations of research students, his tools and techniques have exerted a huge influence across the field of formal verification. In recognition of his scientific achievements, he was elected to the Royal Society in 1994.

This special, informal session at FLoC 2018 gave colleagues, students, collaborators, and friends of Mike an opportunity to come together for three brief research talks on work he influenced.

Registration was free and open to all participants of FLoC, or others who wish to celebrate the scientific legacy of Mike Gordon. We were delighted that over 70 registered participants came, representing all periods of Mike's scientific career.
