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            Giorgio Levi      
     Maria Paola Bonacina                   Jim Lipton    
         Catalin Buiu                     Faron Moller    
         Anatoli Degtyarev                Ilkka Niemela   
             Roy Dyckhoff                Gerald Pfeifer 
          Enrico Franconi               Michael Posegga   
         Alessio Guglielmi                Horst Reichel   
         Steffen Hoelldobler              Joerg Siekmann  
        Heinrich Hussmann               Manfred Stede     
          Dieter Hutter                  Werner Stephan   
           Achim Jung                   Michael Thielscher 
         Antonis Kakas                    Heiko Vogler    
          Petros Kefalas                 Andrei Voronkov  
         Michael Kohlhase             Christoph Weidenbach 
           Armin Kuehnemann           
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 2001.

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 15/07/2001, but applications are processed
as they come.  To apply, just send an e-mail with your curriculum vitae
to <mailto:CL@Pikas.Inf.TU-Dresden.DE>.  Further information is on the
web at <http://pikas.inf.tu-dresden.de/compulog/>.  Paper information
material is available on request.
