2020 European School of Information Theory
The 2020 School
The European School of Information Theory (ESIT) is an annual educational event, organized by the IEEE Information Theory Society (ITSoc), for graduate students, postdocs and researchers from institutes throughout Europe and beyond. The objective of the school is to provide participants 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.
In 2020, the school is held online as a virtual school based in Stuttgart, Germany, with the aim to preserve as much of the community experience as possible through moderated interactive Q&A sessions and virtual poster sessions.
Since ESIT2020 is the only ITSoc school in 2020 we are very happy to welcome many participants from all over the world!
