Proceedings of the 10th Panhelleic Logic Symposium
The Panhellenic Logic Symposium of 2015 (the tenth PLS) is taking place at the University of the Aegean, on the island of Samos. It is including talks and mini-courses by eight invited well known scientists from around the world. The number of papers submitted to the conference was 42, of which 23 were chosen for presentation, either in oral form or as posters. The selection procedure involved refereeing, mostly by two referees, among the members of the Scientific Committee.
Our effort has been, keeping with the established tradition of the Panhellenic Symposia of past years, to serve the researchers of the wider area of South-Eastern Europe by presenting a wide selection of subjects, to some degree representative of the interests in this part of the world, while adhering to the usual high quality standards of similar events on Mathematics,
worldwide. The degree to which we achieved (or not) this aim is to the participants to assess.

The 10th Panhellenic Logic Symposium is taking place on the renowned island of Samos. As Chair of the Organizing Committee, I am grateful to the members of the Steering Committee of the PLS series, for giving me the opportunity to organize this years meeting. The island of Samos is the island of Pythagoras, who not only stated the Pythagorean Theorem, which made him famous as a mathematician, but was also a great philosopher that influenced Plato and Aristotle, as well as the whole of Western philosophy and science. Today, maybe numbers and Mathematics in general do not carry the mysticism they carried in antiquity. But I believe that the thrill caused by a new discovery is the same now as in those days. It is exactly this thrill
of discovery that I hope we will share throughout our symposium, during the presentations of results by our select guests. We have the pleasure of hosting eight distinguished invited speakers and over twenty other speakers, who will guide us into the world of modern as well as ancient logic. It would be a serious mistake not to mention the posters, by means of which results will be presented by enthusiastic graduate students, who have come from faraway places. We have done all we could towards making this meeting memorable for all participants, who have gone into great troubles and expenses to come to Samos from all over the planet. To this end, we were lucky to have the help of several sponsors, whose names are mentioned below; if it were not for the local support we have received, the realization of this meeting would have been impossible. The costs of the official dinner, the posters, the proceedings, the coffee breaks and sweets, as well as the tourist guides have been covered almost completely by our sponsors. Let me finish by thanking aloud the stylobates of this years event: Thanases Pheidas, our
Scientific Committee Chair, Costas Dimitracopoulos and Nikos Papaspyrou, my co-organizers, and, of course, Mrs. Nikoleta Tsesmeli, our Secretary, whose organizational experience has compensated for my own inexperience, thus leading to the success of the meeting. I sincerely hope all participants will keep the best memories of the 10th Panhellenic Logic Symposium.
