What you'll study

The field of information theory has become the de facto intellectual framework for design and analysis of schemes pertaining to information compression, storage, communication and processing. It has helped lay the groundwork for modern information systems such as the internet, wireless and cellular, communication systems, data storage systems and signal processing tools. It has also shown up in other diverse and surprising contexts, such as analysis of biological systems, in control theory, and in quantum information theory.

Topics to be covered include statistical inference, coded caching, private information retrieval, communication complexity, and physical layer security.

The course is limited to a maximum of 60 participants and will be conducted in English. Registration requires submission of a one-page paper abstract and a poster. Submissions must be received by 30 April 2017.
