Our Mission

Jump to other IT Society Websites:

Our Vision is to be the pre-eminent community developing the mathematical underpinnings of information technology for the benefit of humanity.

Our Mission is to support the open exchange of ideas in information theory, broadly construed, through publications, communications, meetings, outreach, education, mentoring, and recognition of excellence.

Information Theory encompasses the processing, transmission, storage, and use of information, and the foundations of the communication process. It specifically encompasses theoretical and certain applied aspects of coding, communications and communications networks, complexity and cryptography, detection and estimation, learning, Shannon Theory, and stochastic processes.
