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, communications, statistics, and secrecy. The scheduled tutorial lecturers for 2019 are:

Matthieu Bloch (Georgia Institute of Technology)
