The meeting is mainly focused on algebraic-geometric codes, codes and combinatorial structures, codes and graphs, group codes, network coding, quantum codes, turbo codes and applications based on coding theory. Other related topics can also be considered at the discretion of the scientific committee.
3rd INTERNATIONAL CASTLE MEETING ON CODING THEORY AND APPLICATIONS 2011

The third International Castle Meeting on Coding Theory and Applications is organized by the Combinatoric and Coding Group (Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona). The meeting will be held in the Castell de Cardona, Barcelona.
The Castell de Cardona is arguably the most important medieval fortress in Catalonia. It is situated on a hill overlooking the river valley of the Cardener and the town of Cardona.
The fortress was initially constructed by Wilfred the Hairy in 886. It is in both the Romanesque and Gothic styles, and includes the so-called Sala Dorada and Sala dels Entresols. During the 14th century, the dukes of Cardona came from the most important family of the Crown of Aragon, which was second only to the royal house. Because of this, they were called ``kings without crowns," as they had extensive territories in Catalonia, Aragon, and Valencia, and dynastic ties with Castile, Portugal, Sicily, and Naples. During the Spanish War of Succession, the Castell de Cardona was the last redoubt of the supporters of Charles VI of Austria, before being occupied by Bourbon troops, which supported Philip V.
