    *** EUROPEAN MASTERS PROGRAM IN COMPUTATIONAL LOGIC ***
              http://www.computational-logic.eu

The  Faculty of  Computer Science  at  the Free  University of  Bozen-
Bolzano (FUB), in Italy  (at the heart  of the  Dolomites mountains in
South-Tyrol),   is   offering   the   European  Masters   Program   in
Computational  Logic as  part of  its  Master of  Science in  Computer
Science offer (Laurea Specialistica).  The European Masters Program in
Computational Logic is an  international distributed Master of Science
course, in  cooperation with the  computer science departments  in the
following universities:

    * Free University of Bozen-Bolzano, Italy
    * Technische Universitaet Dresden, Germany
    * Universidade Nova de Lisboa, Portugal
    * Technische Universitaet Wien, Austria
    * Universidad Politecnica de Madrid, Spain

This program, completely in English, involves studying one year at the
Free University of Bozen-Bolzano,  and completing the second year with
a stay  in one  of the partner  universities. After this,  the student
will obtain, together with the  European degree, two Master of Science
degrees: the  Laurea Specialistica degree from the  Free University of
Bozen-Bolzano, with legal value in Italy, and the respective Master of
Science degree  from the visited  university, with legal value  in its
country.

APPLICATION DEADLINES:

- *** 31 May 2008 ***  deadline for European and non-European students
  (notification of acceptance: 15 June 2008)
- 22 August 2008: last deadline only for European students
  starting at the Free University of Bozen-Bolzano, Italy
  (notification of acceptance: 5 September 2008)

SCHOLARSHIPS & MONEY SUPPORT:

European citizens  can apply to scholarships which  are granted purely
on the  basis of  the yearly  income of the  applicant and  of her/his
parents or husband/wife. Scholarships may amount up to more than 6,000
EUR per  academic year,  plus support on  the accommodation  and total
reimbursement  of  the enrolment  fees.  These  scholarships are  also
available to  non-European citizens with residence  in Italy. European
students  will also  get a  LLP Socrates  Erasmus scholarship  for the
second year of study abroad, which is 330 EUR per month.

   NEW!  Every year 10  students with  European citizenship  can visit
   Australia (Canberra, Sidney, Melbourne  or Brisbane) up to 3 months
   to work  on a research  project, sponsored by the  European Master.
   The study period in Australia is part of the study programme and it
   is   fully  recognised   by  the   European  Master's   Program  in
   Computational Logic. The guaranteed scholarship is of 3,100 EUR and
   it covers  the travel  and living expenses  in Australia.

   The KRDB Research Centre offers  the annual "IBM & KRDB" awards for
   the best  thesis on a  Computational Logic related topic,  which is
   generously sponsored  by the IBM Center for  Advanced Studies; each
   winner  will receive 500  EUR from  IBM. In  addition to  that, the
   Italian  site  in Rome  of  the  IBM  Center for  Advanced  Studies
   supports  scholarships of up  to 2,400  EUR to  work on  a research
   project or on the thesis at their labs in Rome.

THE STUDY PROGRAMME:

The  European Masters Program  in Computational  Logic is  designed to
meet  the demands  of industry  and research  in this  rapidly growing
area.  Based on a  solid foundation in mathematical logic, theoretical
computer science, artificial  intelligence and declarative programming
students  will  acquire   in-depth  knowledge  necessary  to  specify,
implement and  run complex systems as  well as to  prove properties of
these  systems. In  particular, the  focus of  instruction will  be in
deduction systems, knowledge  representation and reasoning, artificial
intelligence, formal  specification and verification,  syntax directed
semantics, logic  and automata  theory, logic and  computability. This
basic  knowledge is  then  applied  to areas  like  logic and  natural
language  processing,  logic  and  the semantic  web,  bioinformatics,
information  systems and  database technology,  software  and hardware
verification.  Students  will acquire  practical  experience and  will
become  familiar in  the use  of tools  within these  applications. In
addition, students will  be prepared for a future  PhD, they will come
in  contact with  the  international research  community  and will  be
integrated   into  ongoing  research   projects.  They   will  develop
competence  in  foreign  languages  and  international  relationships,
thereby improving their social skills.

Applicants  should  have  a  Bachelor  degree  (Laurea  triennale)  in
Computer Science, Computer Engineering, or other relevant disciplines;
special cases will be considered.  The programme is part of the Master
in Computer  Science (Laurea Specialistica in Informatica)  and it has
various  strengths that make  it unique  amongst Italian  and European
universities:

* Curriculum taught entirely in English:  The programme is open to the
   world and prepares the students to move on the international scene.
* Possibility of a strongly research-oriented curriculum.
* Possibility  for  project-based  routes  to obtain  the  degree  and
   extensive lab facilities.
* Other specialisations  with streams in the  hottest Computer Science
   areas,   such  as  Web  Technologies,  Information   and  Knowledge
   Management, Databases and Software Engineering.
* International student community.
* Direct  interaction with  the local  and international  industry and
   research  centres, with the possibility  of practical  and research
   internships that can lead to future employment.
* Excellent scholarship opportunities and student accommodations.

The  European  Masters Program  in  Computational  Logic is  sponsored
scientifically by the European  Network of Excellence on Computational
Logic  (CoLogNET), the  European  Association of  Logic, Language  and
Information   (FoLLI),  the   European   Coordinating  Committee   for
Artificial   Intelligence  (ECCAI),   the   Italian  Association   for
Artificial   Intelligence  (AI*IA),   the   Italian  Association   for
Informatics  (AICA, member  of  the Council  of European  Professional
Informatics  Societies), the  Italian  Association for  Logic and  its
Applications  (AILA), and  the Portuguese  Association  for Artificial
Intelligence (APPIA).

THE FREE UNIVERSITY OF BOZEN-BOLZANO:

The Free  University of Bozen-Bolzano, founded in  1997, boasts modern
premises  in   the  centre   of  Bozen-Bolzano.  The   environment  is
multilingual,  South Tyrol being  a region  where three  languages are
spoken: German, Italian and Ladin. Studying in a multilingual area has
shown  that  our students  acquire  the  cutting  edge needed  in  the
international business  world. Many of  our teaching staff  hails from
abroad.   Normal  lectures  are   complemented  with   seminars,  work
placements and  laboratory work, which give our  students a vocational
as well  as theoretical training, preparing them  for their subsequent
professional careers. Studying at the Free University of Bozen-Bolzano
means,  first and  foremost,  being  guided all  the  way through  the
student's educational career.
Bozen-Bolzano, due to its enviable geographical position in the centre
of   the  Dolomites,  also   offers  our   students  a   multitude  of
opportunities  for  spending  their  free-time. The  city  unites  the
traditional with the modern. Young people and fashionable shops throng
the city  centre where ancient mercantile buildings  are an attractive
backdrop to a city that is  in continual growth. To the south there is
the  industrial  and  manufacturing  area with  prosperous  small  and
medium-sized businesses  active in every economic sector.  Back in the
17th century  Bozen-Bolzano was already a  flourishing mercantile city
that, thanks  to its particular  geographic position, functioned  as a
kind of bridge between northern and southern Europe. As a multilingual
town  and a cultural  centre Bozen-Bolzano  still has  a lot  to offer
today.  Its plethora  of theatres,  concerts with  special programmes,
cinemas and museums, combined with a series of trendy night spots that
create local  colour make  Bozen-Bolzano a city  that is  beginning to
cater for  its increasingly demanding  student population. And  if you
fancy a very special experience, go and visit the city's favourite and
most famous resident - "Oetzi", the Ice Man of Similaun, housed in his
very  own  refrigerated room  in  the  recently opened  archaeological
museum.
Bozen-Bolzano and its surroundings are an El Dorado for sports lovers:
jogging  on the  grass alongside  the River  Talfer-Talvera,  walks to
Jenesien-S.Genesio   and  on   the  nearby   Schlern-Sciliar  plateau,
excursions  and mountain climbing  in the  Dolomites, swimming  in the
numerous nearby lakes and, last but not least, skiing and snowboarding
in the surrounding ski areas.
