History of PLS
The Panhellenic Logic Symposium (PLS) is a biannual scientific event established in 1997, that aims to promote the interaction and cross-fertilization between different areas of logic. Originally conceived as a way of bringing together the many Logicians of Greek origin that work and live in various countries (mostly in Europe and America), it has evolved into an international forum for the communication of state-of-the-art advances in logic by established researchers, and provides an opportunity for young researchers to become familiar with the latest developments in logic. The symposium is open to researchers from all countries.
The First Panhellenic Symposium on Logic (1st PLS) took place in Nicosia, Cyprus, in July 1997. It was attended by approximately seventy Greek and foreign researchers who work on logic broadlyconceived, from history of logic and philosophy of mathematics to mathematical logic and to logic in computer science. At the end of that symposium, it was decided to establish the Panhellenic Logic Symposium (PLS) as a biannual scientific event.
The Second Panhellenic Logic Symposium (2nd PLS) took place in Delphi, Greece, from July 13, 1999 to July 17, 1999. It was hosted at the European Cultural Center of Delphi, a modern conference facility located in a unique natural setting and in close proximity to the archaeological site of Delphi. The scientific program of the symposium consisted of hour-long invited talks, three tutorials, a panel discussion, and presentations of accepted papers.
The Third Panhellenic Logic Symposium (3rd PLS) took place at Anogia (Crete), Greece, from 17 July 2001 to 21 July, 2001. It was hosted at the Anogia Academic Village in the island of Crete, a conference facility located in a unique natural setting, 40 minutes from Heraklion and Knossos and 50 from Rethymno. The scientific program of the symposium consisted of hour-long invited talks, four tutorials, a panel discussion, and contributed papers.
The Fourth Panhellenic Logic Symposium (4th PLS) was organized by the University of Thessaloniki and the University of Patras and took place in Thessaloniki, Greece.
