Dear all,

Find attached the call for PhD candidates for September 2013 in the
can find the terms and conditions web). There are 10 competitive
(for three years).

Among the different research lines, here you can see those related with
constraint programming:

*Automated tools for Software Engineering*

Nowadays software is a core asset in companies and administrations of any
size. The existence of software bugs can cause accidents and important
economic losses. This is why the discipline of software engineering
attempts to improve automation in the software developing process. This
research line is oriented towards investigating automated tools that help
the quality of the final software product through the use of techniques
from modelling, algorithmics and artificial intelligence.

*Optimization and Simulation of Logistics, Transportation and Production

One of the emergent research areas in Computer Science is the development
of new hybrid algorithms and software applications aimed at solving complex
real-life challenges such as those associated with routing, scheduling or
reliability/availability problems. Most of these problems are considered to
be NP-hard, which means that an efficient approach can be built only by
combining techniques from different areas such as Computer Science and
Operations Research (e.g. computer simulation, heuristics, constraint
programming, parallel programming, etc.). At the same time, these problems
represent important challenges for strategic sectors in any developed
country such as industry and services, which explains the relevance of the
proposed topics to current international research.

If you know of potential candidates, please pass them this information. It
would be great also to collaborate with your research teams if you are
interested in keep
the contact with the student.

Well, if you had any question/comment, you can write me to drierat_at_uoc.edu.
