The Information Theory Society established the Distinguished Lecturer Program to promote interest in information theory by supporting chapters who wish to invite prominent information theory researchers to give talks at their events. Distinguished Lecturers are selected by the Membership and Chapters (MC) Committee in consultation with the Board of Governors. The Society aims to maintain ten Distinguished Lecturers each serving for two year terms.
Media Services is an initiative of the IEEE Information Theory Society to archive media-rich content generated by the community. Such content includes: slides, audio, and video from lectures and panel discussions; photographs from current and historical events; conference websites; and so forth.
