The next edition of the workshop "Beyond i.i.d. in Information Theory" is fast approaching.
It will be held at the Isaac Newton Institute in Cambridge from 23rd July-27th July 2018. Here is the
website for the workshop:
The main topics to be covered in the workshop are
  • Finite block length analysis
  • One-shot information theory
  • Entropic quantities
  • Additivity problems
  • Thermodynamics and other resource theories
  • Mathematical physics
  • Inequalities and open quantum systems
In addition there will be a session dedicated to the memory of Denes Petz and his invaluable contribution
to our field.

The workshop will consist of talks and posters invited by the organisers. We already have three invited speakers who have confirmed their participation.:

  • Ioannis Kontoyiannis (Cambridge, UK)
  • Renato Renner (ETH, Zurich)
  • Eric Carlen (Rutgers, USA)
To help us select a good programme, we invite the community to make suggestions for talks. Any member of the community can participate, either by nominating  someone else with a concrete talk topic, or by submitting his/her own work in the traditional manner. In either case, the nomination or self-nomination should follow the following format:

Nominator: Full name, email, affiliation, research interests
Talk nominee: Full name, email, affiliation
Talk suggestion: A description of between half a page and up to two pages, explaining the pertinence of the submission for BIID, with a title and relevant pointers to full paper(s). 

Note: Entries are to be sent to by 31/03/2018.
We will be looking forward to receiving your entries,
Best regards,
The organizers:
Nilanjana Datta, Jossy Sayir and Andreas Winter
