This entry is about (the legendary conference Como 1990 and) the excellent proceedings volume

  • A. Carboni, M. Pedicchio, G. Rosolini, Category theory , Proceedings of the International Conference held in Como 1990, 213–236, Lecture Notes in Math. 1488, Springer (1991).

which is one of the overall historical heights of the (quality content of the) proceedings within the tradition of conferences in pure category theory. Now it is even hard to find a publisher for contemporary category conference proceedings…

The preface is
