The University of the Philippines Los Baños has a long tradition of interdisciplinary research studies. The UPLB Computational Interdisciplinary Research Labs (CINTERLABS) is continuing this tradition, but it is focusing on the computational sciences and arts. Building on the individual strengths of the various academic units, CINTERLABS is creating a research and development niche, where our researchers – undergraduates and graduate research students who are trained in various disciplines and supervised by the faculty, team up to study emerging problems and find creative computational solutions.
