FINAL CALL

FIRST PANHELLENIC SYMPOSIUM ON LOGIC

July 21-24 1997, Nicosia, Cyprus.

Logic finds its roots in the various schools of philosophy in Ancient Greece. Amongst these, the Aristotelian school has dominated the development of Logic from antiquity until today. In its modern form Logic manifests itself as a fundamental area in many other disciplines such as Mathematics, Computer Science, Philosophy, Law and others. This Symposium aims to bring together researchers from these various disciplines to address modern developments in logic. In particular, the symposium aims to promote cross-fertilization amongst developments and needs in these different disciplines and evaluate the overall significance of Logic as a unifying basic discipline.

The scientific program of the symposium will include invited talks, presentations of accepted papers and panel discussions. The meeting will include the following invited talks:

F. Afrati (NTUA, Greece) "Arity hierarchies for fixed-point logic"

I. Antoniou (International Solvay Institutes, ULB, Belgium), "Probabilistic Logics Associated with Complex Systems"

S. Cosmadakis (University of Patras, Greece) "Expressiveness of Database Query Languages"

C. Dimitrakopoulos (University of Athens, Greece), "Subsystems of Peano Arithmetic: Some results and problems"

T. Feidas (University of Heraclion, Greece), "Current trends in Model Theory and Hilbert's Tenth Problem"

P. Kolaitis (University of California, USA), "0-1 Laws in Finite Model Theory"

G. Metakides (European Commission, Belgium), "Title to be announced"

C. Papadimitriou (University of California at Berkeley, USA), "Title to be announced"

E. Papadopetrakis (University of Patras, Greece), "The Propositional Calculus and the Stoics"

J. Sifakis (VERIMAG, France) "Program Specification and Verification"

M. Yannakakis (Bell Labs, USA) "Title to be announced"

S. Zachos (NTUA, Greece) "Non-Collapsing Assumptions about Complexity Classes needed for proving Non-Approximability Results"

Papers are invited on all aspects of Logic from researchers who are interested in participating. Position papers on open problems in Logic or the relationship and relevance of logic in other areas are particularly encouraged.

Papers must be short not exceeding five pages. They can be written in either English or Greek and should be sent to the symposium address before May 31, 1997. Papers can be sent either in hard copy form or electronic form. Authors are requested to classify their work in one of the following domains: 1. Formal Logic, 2. Logic in Computer Science, 3. Logic, Sciences and Philosophy, 4. Other (please specify).

Interested authors are also kindly requested to register their intention to submit a paper by sending an email with a tentative title and abstract to the symposium address as early as possible. This is needed to ensure that appropriate reviewers can be found within the tight schedule available. Notification of authors will be sent on June 15, 1997 and copies for the proceedings need to arrive at the symposium address by July 7, 1997.

The Symposium will also include three panel discussions of general interest on the following topics:

1. Frontiers of Logic:Research trends and directions (Panelists include:T. Feidas, K. Georgatos, P.Kolaitis, M. Mitilineos, K. Skandalis) 2. Industrial and other applications of Logic (Panelists include:F. Afrati, I. Antoniou, G. Metakides, J. Sifakis, S. Zachos) 3. Logic in Education. (Panelists include:C. Dimitrakopoulos, C. Drosos, C.Hatzikiriakou, G. Koletsos, A. Kakas)

Anyone interested in contributing to the discussion should send a short summary of her/his position statement (maximum 2 pages) to the symposium address before June 15, 1997. The position statements of the panelists will be posted on the WWW pages of the symposium at the begining of June.

Also during the meeting there will be demonstrations of systems based on Logical Foundations. Anyone wishing to demonstrate a system should send a short (maximum 2 pages) description of the system together with a complete list of hardware and software needed for the system to run. These should reach the symposium address as soon as possible before June 7, 1997.

TRAVEL INFORMATION

People attending the Symposium should fly to Cyprus at Larnaca airport preferably. Paphos airport is another possibility but this is a smaller airport (hence there will be less flights to it) and it is a lot further away from Nicosia than Larnaca airport. To get from Larnaca to Nicosia (a 45 minutes trip) there will be two possibilities:

(i) you can register with us (see below) your arrival time and that you would like to take a mini-bus that we will organize or (ii) take (or better share) a private taxi from the airport. There is a fixed fare for Larnaca-Nicosia which is about 15CYP (25Ecu) depending on the time of day.

The second option can always be a fall back option.
