In 2021, the International Symposium on Information Theory (ISIT) will be held 11–16 July at the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Center in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. ISIT was last held in Australia in 2005, in Adelaide.
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, ISIT 2021 will feature contributed papers, the Shannon lecture and plenary talks, as well as tutorial sessions.
