International Symposium on Information Theory - ISIT 2017



The IEEE International Symposium on Information Theory (ISIT) will take place in Aachen, from June 25 to 30  2017. With 800 international experts, scientists and researchers expected, ISIT focuses on the processing, transmission, storage, and use of information. It specifically encompasses theoretical and certain applied aspects of coding, communications and communications networks, complexity and cryptography, detection and estimation, and learning.


General Co-Chairs:
Prof. Dr. Rudolf Mathar
Institute for Theoretical Information Technology, RWTH Aachen University

Prof. Dr. Gerhard Kramer
Institute for Communications Engineering, Technical University of Munich



The range of topics related to information theory includes, but is not limited to the following areas: Big Data Analytics, Coding for Communication and Storage, Coding Theory, Communication Theory, Complexity and Computation Theory, Compressed Sensing and Sparsity, Cryptography and Security, Detection and Estimation, Emerging Applications of IT, Information Theory and Statistics, Information Theory in Biology, Network Coding and Applications, Network Information Theory, Optical Communication, Pattern Recognition and Machine Learning, Physical Layer Security, Quantum Information and Coding Theory, Shannon Theory, Signal Processing, Source Coding and Data Compression, Wireless Communication and Networks.

The IEEE association is a network and a think tank for new ideas. By contributing to the Aachen conference you will be able to draw the attention of key players in this field from around the world. The range of use cases is broad. Network operators and developers are equally addressed. Companies and institutions which provide services for the “smart market” often use solutions based on Information Theory. We look forward to welcoming you to the world of Information Theory in Aachen!
