The 2014 IEEE Information Theory Workshop will take place 2-5 November in Hobart, Tasmania, Australia at the Hobart Function And Conference Centre.
Plenary Presentation Slides Slides from the plenary presentaitons are available.
Call for Papers
ITW2014 is a forum for technical exchange among scientists and engineers working on the fundamentals of information theory. The agenda is broad and will cover the diverse topics that information theory presently impacts. There will be both invited and contributed sessions. Papers for the contributed sessions are solicited in, but not limited to, the following areas:
- Source coding
- Distributed source and channel coding
- Joint source and channel coding
- Coding for wireless systems
- Coding for sensor and ad-hoc networks
- MIMO and space-time coding
- Graph-based codes and iterative decoding
- Cooperation in wireless systems
- Sequences and coding
- Compressed sensing
- Coding applications: optical communications, smart grid, underwater, etc
- Information theoretic security
Interested authors are invited to submit previously unpublished contributions. Papers for the contributed sessions, not exceeding five pages, should be submitted according to directions at Information for Authors. The ITW proceedings will be published by the IEEE and will be available on IEEE Xplore.
- Paper submission deadline:
4 May 201411 May 2014
- Acceptance notification: 27 July 2014
- Final paper submission and one author registration: 17 August 2014
- Early bird conference registration: 15 September 2014
ITW 2014 will include three plenary talks.
- Emina Soljanin, "Codes for All Seasons"
- Martin Wainwright, "Information-theoretic methods in statistical machine learning: Privacy-utility tradeoffs and distributed computation"
- Girish Nair, "Nonstochastic Entropy and Information Concepts for Worst-Case Networked Control"
