"When you want to build a ship, then do not drum the men together in order to procure wood, to give instructions or to distribute the work, but teach them longing for the wide endless sea." - A. de Saint-Exupery

Welcome!

This is the official web site of the Algorithms and Complexity Laboratory (ACLab) of the Department of Computer Science of the University of the Philippines Diliman. ACLab currently has 7 regular members, headed by Henry N. Adorna, Professor of Computer Science.

ACLab conducts research on a diverse range of topics, all anchored on a theoretical computer science perspective. Current active research areas include formal models, natural computing, algorithmics for hard problems, bioinformatics, and data analysis and visualization.
