 Quote of the day

Some of the men stood talking in this room, and at the right of the door a little knot had formed round a small table, the center of which was the mathematics student, who ws eagerly talking. He had made the assertion that one could draw through a given point more than one parallel to a straight line; Frau Hagenström had cried out that this was impossible, and he had gone on to prove it so conclusively that his hearers were constrained to behave as though they understood.

Little Herr Friedemann. Mann, Thomas (1875-1955)

Welcome to the web site of the ALgorithms, Bioinformatics, COmplexity and formal Methods (ALBCOM) Research Group. Most of the members of the group belong to the Departament de Llenguatges i Sistemes Informàtics (LSI) from the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC).

All lines of research within ALBCOM are concerned with algorithmic and theoretical aspects related to the computational difficulty of problem-solving. The main lines of research are:

  • bioinformatics,
  • computational complexity theory,
  • design and analysis of algorithms and data structures,
  • formal methods and
  • networks.

The group is often involved in the organization of seminars, workshops and conferences. The agenda keeps track of these activities. The members of ALBCOM participate in research projects, mostly supported by the European Union or the Spanish or Catalan governments. The group is also involved in some projects with industry in the area of Information Technologies.

ALBCOM participates in the Master and Ph.D. programs on Computing of LSI. Together with the rest of the department, members of ALBCOM also lecture in several undergraduate courses at different Faculties and Technical Schools of the UPC:

  • Facultat d'Informàtica de Barcelona (FIB)
  • Facultat de Matemàtiques i Estadística (FME)
  • Escola Tècnica Superior d'Enginyeria Industrial de Terrassa (ETSEIT)
  • Escola Politècnica Superior d'Enginyeria de Manresa (EPSEM)
