Goldsmith Lecture

Jump to other IT Society Websites:
The Goldsmith Lecturer Program was established with a generous gift of Dr. Andrea Goldsmith in 2019. The Goldsmith Lecture will be delivered by an early-career female researcher at one of the ITSoc’s Schools of Information Theory, held for the benefit of students and postdoctoral researchers. The award is used to defray the economy class travel expenses to the Goldsmith Lecturer. By highlighting technical achievements of early career women, the ITSoc Goldsmith Lecturer Program helps the award recipients build their professional career and recognition. The lectureship contributes to the public visibility of the researcher and helps increase diversity of IEEE IT-S and IEEE as a whole, as women are an under-represented group in both. The award recipient will also serve as a role model and inspiration to diverse students attending the Information Theory Schools.
