The Vienna Center for Logic and Algorithms (VCLA) at TU Wien seeks
nominations for the VCLA  International Student Awards 2019. The annually
awarded VCLA International Student Awards for Outstanding Master and
Undergraduate Research (Bachelor) Theses (or equivalent) recognize authors
of scientific works across the wide spectrum of Logic and Computer Science.
Final Submission Deadline:  15.3.2019  

 

AWARD

*Outstanding Master Thesis Award:  1200 EUR

*Outstanding Undergraduate Research (Bachelor) Award:  800 EUR

*The winners will be invited to present their work at an award ceremony in
Vienna, Austria. 

 

ELIGIBILITY 

*The degree must have been awarded between November 15th, 2017, and December
31st, 2018, (inclusive).

*Students who obtained their degree at TU Wien are excluded from the
nomination.

 

MAIN AREAS OF INTEREST

*Computational Logic, covering theoretical and mathematical foundations such
as proof theory, model theory, computability theory, algorithmic lower and
upper bounds, Boolean satisfiability (SAT), QBF, constraint satisfaction,
satisfiability modulo theories, automated deduction (resolution, refutation,
theorem proving), non-classical logics (substructural logics, multi-valued
logics, deontic logics, modal and temporal logics), computational complexity
and algorithms (complexity analysis, parameterized and exact algorithms,
decomposition methods).

 

*Databases and Artificial Intelligence, concerned with logical methods for
modeling, storing, and drawing inferences from data and knowledge. This
includes subjects like query languages based on logical concepts (Datalog,
variants of SQL, XML, and SPARQL), novel database-theoretical methods
(schema mappings, information extraction and integration), logic
programming, knowledge representation and reasoning (ontologies, answer-set
programming, belief change, inconsistency handling, argumentation,
planning).

 

*Verification, concerned with logical methods and automated tools for
reasoning about the behavior and correctness of complex state-based systems
such as software and hardware designs as well as hybrid systems. This ranges
from model checking, program analysis and abstraction to new
interdisciplinary areas such as fault localization, program repair, program
synthesis, and the analysis of biological systems.
