at preparing researchers and professionals with a wide knowledge of the
theoretical foundations of computer science and informatics, control
systems and optimization, image analysis, and management science.

The curriculum in Computer Science aims at training a new generation of
researchers in the theoretical and practical aspects of modern computing
systems, including global, cloud, autonomic and service-oriented systems.
The focus is on the development of models, algorithms, verification methods
and software tools that can tackle the challenges of today e-society
efficiently and effectively. The main aim is that of characterizing and
guaranteeing essential features and desirable properties of these systems
such as reliability, open-endedness, autonomicity, security, concurrency,
scalability, cost-effectiveness, quality of service, and dependability.

collaboration with the SysMA research unit of IMT (
http://sysma.lab.imtlucca.it/) or within research groups active in two
institutes of the Italian National Research Council in Pisa, namely the
Istituto di Informatica e Telematica (http://www.iit.cnr.it/en) and the
Istituto di Scienza e Tecnologie dell’Informazione (http://www.isti.cnr.it/).
