Welcome to ITW 2019 Visby, Gotland, Sweden, Aug 25-28


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We seek original, unpublished contributions in all areas of information theory, including but not limited to the focus topics listed below.

  1. Modern Coding Theory

    Graph based codes and iterative decoding
    Spatially coupled codes
    Polar codes

  2. Security, Privacy, and Trust
