2017 European School of Information Theory
May 8-11, 2017, Madrid, Spain

The European School of Information Theory (ESIT) is an annual educational event, organized by the IEEE Information Theory Society, for graduate students from institutes throughout Europe and beyond. The objective of the school is to provide the students with the opportunity (i) to learn from distinguished lecturers by attending long-format tutorials, (ii) to present their own work to obtain feedback and to start up collaborations, (iii) to hear about applications of information theory in industry, and (iv) to participate in a stimulating and inviting forum of scientists.

Topics of the school include Shannon Theory, coding theory, source coding, sequential analysis and applied probability, among others. The scheduled tutorial lectures are:

Spatially coupled LDPC codes: from theory to practice
Daniel J. Costello, Jr. (University of Notre Dame)

Channel reliability: from ordinary to zero-error capacity
Marco Dalai (University of Brescia)

Fundamental limits in asynchronous communication
Aslan Tchamkerten (Telecom ParisTech)

Information-theoretic signal processing
Ram Zamir (Tel Aviv University)

The final program will be published when available.
