   - complexity analysis for fragments of first- (or higher) order logic
   - complexity analysis for combinations of logical theories
     (including parameterized complexity results)
- Tractability (in logic, automated reasoning, algebra, ...)

  (verification, security, databases, ontologies, ...)
