International Masters Programme in Computational Logic
International Masters Programme in COMPUTATIONAL LOGIC
The Dresden University of Technology is offering a two-year study
programme, in English, leading to a master of science in computational
logic (together with a German "Diplom in Informatik"). The programme is
sponsored by the European Network of Excellence in Computational Logic
(COMPULOG Net) and other German institutions.
Past and present teachers include:
Oskar Bartenstein Jim Lipton
Maria Paola Bonacina Faron Moller
Anatoli Degtyarev Michael Posegga
Enrico Franconi Horst Reichel
Alessio Guglielmi Joerg Siekmann
Steffen Hoelldobler Michael Thielscher
Dieter Hutter Heiko Vogler
Michael Kohlhase Andrei Voronkov
Giorgio Levi Christoph Weidenbach
Courses focus on logic and constraint programming, artificial
intelligence, type theory, model theory, proof theory, equational
reasoning, databases, natural language processing, planning and formal
methods, among others.
The tuition fees are waived. At the end of the programme a research
master thesis has to be discussed.
Prerequisites are a good knowledge of the basics of logic, and
familiarity with mathematical reasoning. Knowledge of foundations of
artificial intelligence and logic programming are desirable. It is
indispensable being fluent in English; German is not necessary at all,
but there are facilities for studying it if desired. A bachelor in
Computer Science, or equivalent degree, is required by the beginning of
courses, in October '99.
Dresden, on the river Elbe, is one of the most important art cities of
Germany. The economy is growing rapidly, Siemens, Motorola and AMD are
building the most modern chip factory of Europe and possibilities of
getting a job after the master are very high, in the whole Germany. The
University is very well equipped and the teachers/students ratio is
close to 1. International contacts make it easy for interested students
to continue pursuing a career in research.
Deadline for applications is 30/06/99, but applications are processed as
they come. To apply, just send an e-mail with your curriculum vitae to
<mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org>. Further information is on the web
at <http://pikas.inf.tu-dresden.de/compulog/>. Paper information
material is available on request.
Please give this message maximum diffusion.
