2022 IEEE European School of Information Theory
The IEEE 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.
The 2022 School
In 2022, we plan to bring the school back to an on-site format at Technical University (TU) Wien in Vienna, Austria, to fully embrace the community experience through on-site plenary talks, online lectures with live Q&A sessions, and interactive attendee poster sessions, complemented by social events.
School dates: The school starts on Sunday, July 3rd, evenings with a welcome reception and ends on Thursday, July 7th, afternoons.
School venue: The school is hosted by Technical University (TU) Wien, Austria's largest technical university teaching approximately thirty thousand students.
School location: The school takes place in Vienna, Austria's capital city with approximately 1.9 million inhabitants, famous for its rich culture, imperial sights, palaces, museums, theaters and opera houses, as well as, its cozy wine taverns and coffee houses.
In case an on-site event is still not possible due to the pandemic situation, we will offer a hybrid/virtual format.
The registration platform will open in early 2022.
We will offer reduced registration fees for IEEE members and especially for IEEE ITSoc members.
