ITSOC Distinguished Lecturers

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.
