European PhD Program in Computational Logic (EPCL)
CALL FOR APPLICATIONS
The European PhD Program in Computational Logic (EPCL) is run jointly
by four of the leading European universities in the field:
- Free University of Bozen-Bolzano (Italy),
- Technische Universität Dresden (Germany),
- Technische Universität Wien (Austria), and
- Universidade Nova de Lisboa (Portugal).
Further international universities, research organizations and
enterprises that contribute to Computational Logic or apply results
from it are involved as associated partners: The Simon Fraser
University (Canada), the Universidad de Chile, the NICTA (National ICT
Australia), as well as several companies.
The program involves three years of PhD study in at least two of the
European partner universities. It leads to a joint doctoral degree
issued by the partner universities at which the studies have been
physically performed. The language of the program is English.
Financial support is available in the form of positions and
scholarships. A foundation track and an application-oriented track
match with career perspectives in university research as well as in
Necessary requirements for participation in EPCL are: A Master's
degree in Computer Science or Mathematics, or an equivalent degree;
the proof of adequate knowledge of English; and substantial knowledge
in the areas Foundations of Logics, Foundations of Artificial
Intelligence and Declarative Programming.
The program starts annually in the winter term. Applications for 2013
have to be electronically submitted on the Webpage
