The IEEE Information Theory Workshop will be held in Visby, Gotland, Sweden, from the 25th to the 28th of August 2019.
The Hanseatic city Visby is located on the island of Gotland in the Baltic sea. It is one of the best-preserved medieval cities in Scandinavia with its 3.4km long town wall and several church ruins in the old city center. Visby is listed on the UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1995 and Gotland is a very popular summer vacation destination for Scandinavians.
We seek original, unpublished contributions in all areas of information theory, including but not limited to the focus topics listed below.
Graph based codes and iterative decoding
Spatially coupled codes
Physical layer security
Private information retrieval
Security and privacy in distributed storage
Security and privacy in machine learning
Interaction of information and control
Time-sensitive source and channel coding
Networked control systems
Entropy in control, dynamics, and information theory
In addition, papers that broaden the reach of information theory, including emerging fields and novel applications of information theory, are encouraged.
We are looking forward to welcoming you in Visby!
