This Festschrift volume is published in memory of William W. McCune who passed away in 2011. William W. McCune was an accomplished computer scientist all around but especially a fantastic system builder and software engineer. The volume includes 13 full papers, which are presenting research in all aspects of automated reasoning and its applications to mathematics. These papers have been thoroughly reviewed and selected out of 15 submissions received in response to the call for paper issued in September 2011. The topics covered are: strategies, indexing, superposition-based theorem proving, model building, application of automated reasoning to mathematics, as well as to program verification, data mining, and computer formalized mathematics.Essays in Memory of William W. McCune Maria Paola Bonacina, Mark E. Stickel ... We present evidence that the adaptation of ideas of strategy prevalent both within the Argonne and LCF theorem proving paradigms ... at the University of Texas at Austin, where in Autumn 2004 I was lucky enough to take an automated reasoning course with Bob Boyer. ... I was mesmerized by OTTERa#39;s power and flexibility, and seduced by the playful way their book taught us to apply it to real problems.
