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
- 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.

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
