HISTORY OF THE SYMPOSIUM

The Panhellenic Logic Symposium, a biennial scientific event established in 1997, aims to promote interaction and cross-fertilization among different areas of logic. Originally conceived as a way of bringing together the many logicians of Hellenic descent throughout the world, it has evolved into an international forum for the communication of state-of-the-art advances in logic. The symposium is open to researchers worldwide who work in logic broadly conceived.
The Eighth Panhellenic Logic Symposium will be hosted by the Department of Computer Science at the University of Ioannina.

PROGRAM OF THE SYMPOSIUM

The scientific program of the symposium will consist of one-hour long invited talks, three-hour long tutorials, and twenty-five-minute presentations of accepted contributed papers.  There will also be special opportunities for students to give short talks, and receive comments on work in progress.
