This volume contains the proceedings of the 8th Conference on Foundations of Software Technology and Theoretical Computer Science held in Pune, India, on December 21-23, 1988. This internationally well-established Indian conference series provides a forum for actively investigating the interface between theory and practice of Software Science. It also gives an annual occasion for interaction between active research communities in India and abroad. Besides attractive invited papers the volume contains carefully reviewed submitted papers on the following topics: Automata and Formal Languages, Graph Algorithms and Geometric Algorithms, Distributed Computing, Parallel Algorithms, Database Theory, Logic Programming, Programming Methodology, Theory of Algorithms, Semantics and Complexity.
