The European Masters Program in Computational Logic is a distributed
MSc program which is offered by the following universities:

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

Students select two out of the five partner universities, study for
one year at each of the selected universities and will receive a
double MSc-degree from the selected universities.


- 31 May 2008: deadline for all European and non-European students
   (notification of acceptance: 15 July 2008)


There will be 12 consortium scholarships to waive one year's tuition
fee of 3.000 ? for students who newly enroll in the winter semester
2008 and do not receive any other scholarship. These scholarships will
be given on the basis of academic merit.

Every year 10 EMCL students with European citizenship can visit
Australia (Canberra, Sydney, 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 ? and it covers the
travel and living expenses in Australia.

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 (Bologna 1st cycle or
equivalent) in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Logic, or other
relevant disciplines; special cases will be considered.  The program
has various strength that make it unique among European universities:

* Curriculum taught entirely in English: The program 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.

* 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 one of the few
European Masters awarded by the European Union's Erasmus Mundus
programme from its first year of existence in 2004. The Erasmus Mundus
programme is a co-operation and mobility programme in the field of
higher education which promotes the European Union as a centre of
excellence in learning around the world.  It supports European
top-quality Masters Courses and enhances the visibility and
attractiveness of European higher education in third-countries. It
also provides EU-funded scholarships for third-country nationals
participating in these Masters Courses, as well as scholarships for
EU-nationals studying in third-countries.

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).
