  CALL FOR PAPERS


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.

All submitted papers will be reviewed by the scientific committee of the symposium, who will make final decisions on acceptance or rejection.  During the symposium, each accepted paper will be presented by one of its authors, with five extra minutes for questions.  Authors of submitted papers will be notified of the decision by early May 2011. Camera-ready extended abstracts will be due by the end of May for inclusion in the symposium proceedings which will be distributed to all participants.
