The Vienna Center for Logic and Algorithms of TU Wien (Vienna University of
Technology), calls for the nomination of authors of outstanding theses and
scientific works in the field of Logic and Computer Science, in the
following two categories:
•       Outstanding Master Thesis Award
•       Outstanding Undergraduate Thesis Award (Bachelor thesis or
equivalent, 1st cycle of the Bologna process)

The main areas of interest are:
•       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.
The award is dedicated to the memory of Helmut Veith, the brilliant
computer scientist who tragically passed away in March 2016, and aims to
carry on his  commitment to promoting young talent and promising
researchers in these areas.

The Outstanding Master Thesis Award is accompanied by a prize of € 1200,
and the Outstanding Undergraduate Research Award by a prize of € 800.
Additionally, the winners will be invited to present their work at an award
ceremony during the Federated Logic Conference (FLoC) 2018 in Oxford.

The degree must have been awarded between November 15th 2015 and December
31st 2017. Students who obtained the degree at TU Wien are excluded from
the nomination.

Important dates
Submission deadline (extended): March 25, 2018 (Anywhere on Earth)
Notification of decision: End of May 2018
Award ceremony: July 2018 (during FLoC 2018, details to be announced)
