This year, we celebrate 100 years since the birth of Claude Shannon, the father of information theory. To mark the occasion, a number of outreach centennial events are organized worldwide, aiming to make the contributions of Claude Shannon and information theory more widely known to the general public. If you are interested in organizing such an event, the IT Society can provide support through materials and some funding.
