It is our great pleasure to publish a special issue regarding Prof. Dr. Bernd Krieg-Bruckner's 66th birthday, guest-edited kindly by Dr. Berthold Hoffmanm, Prof. Dr. Dieter Hutter and Dr. Hui Shi. Prof. Krieg-Bruckner has been a respectful scholar; a world's leading researcher with cross-border research interests, ranging from language design to software engineering to artificial intelligence to robot design; a warmhearted figure who is ready to help anybody at any instant; a real internationalist who gathers in his group young scholar from all continents of world; an amateur architect who drafted, designed and built his own two-stock palace-like home within a few months; a spare-time chef-cock who can prepare any type of delicious cuisines you want, in particular Chinese Hong'Shao'Rou(pork braised in brown source). For me and for many his Chinese friends, beyond those state above, Bernd has been in the first place a faithful friend of China and Chinese computer scientists. the only problem for the Chinese people is that many of them may confuse Bernd's picture with the portrait of Karl Marx. It would be difficult to count all contributions he made to the Chinese computer science community. We will show only one evidence of these contributions: Bernd's report to the Chinese University Development Project written by him in 1984 which has never been published. It is with his permission that we publish this historical document here. While giving our thanks to the three guest editors once again, we wish Bernd a very happy long life.
