Welcome to IEEE ISIT 2020

2020 IEEE International Symposium on Information Theory

IEEE International Symposium on Information Theory (ISIT) is the premier international conference dedicated to the advancement of information theory and related areas. It brings together an international community of researchers and practitioners each year in the field of information theory to present and discuss new research results and perspectives on future developments relevant to all areas of information theory, including big data analytics, source and channel coding, communication theory and systems, cryptography and security, detection and estimation, emerging applications, networks, network coding/information theory, signal processing, and statistical/machine learning.

Hosted by the IEEE Information Theory Society, the 2020 (virtual) ISIT will feature contributed papers, the Shannon lecture and plenary talks, as well as panel/tutorial sessions.

We hope that you will enjoy the virtual IEEE ISIT 2020.
