IEEE Information Theory Workshop 2019
Visby, Gotland, Sweden - August 25-28, 2019
Submission Deadline: April 10, 2019!

Dear Friends and Colleagues, we would like to invite you to the  IEEE Information Theory Workshop 2019  which will be held in Visby, Gotland, Sweden, from the 25th to the 28th of August 2019.

The Hanseatic city Visby is located on the island of Gotland in the Baltic sea. It is one of the best-preserved medieval cities in Scandinavia with its 3.4km long town wall and several church ruins in the old city center. Visby is listed on the UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1995 and Gotland is a very popular summer vacation destination for Scandinavians.

We seek original, unpublished contributions in  all areas of information theory , including but not limited to the focus topics listed below.

1. Modern Coding Theory
  • Graph based codes and iterative decoding
  • Spatially coupled codes
  • Polar codes
2. Security, Privacy, and Trust
  • Physical layer security
  • Private information retrieval
  • Security and privacy in distributed storage
  • Security and privacy in machine learning
3. Cyber-Physical Systems
  • Interaction of information and control
  • Time-sensitive source and channel coding
  • Networked control systems
  • Entropy in control, dynamics, and information theory
In addition, papers that broaden the reach of information theory, including emerging fields and novel applications of information theory, are encouraged.

The workshop features  six keynotes  given by world leading researchers in the field:
  • Ilya Dumer  (University of California Riverside, USA)
  • Syed A. Jafar  (University of California Irvine, USA)
  • Olgica Milenkovic (University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, USA)
  • Angelia Nedich (Arizona State University, USA)
  • Anant Sahai (University of California Berkeley, USA)
  • Aylin Yener (The Pennsylvania State University, USA)
Submitted papers should be of sufficient length and detail for review by experts in the field. Papers should be submitted for review through EDAS. Final papers will be limited to   5 pages   in length in the standard IEEE conference format. Accepted papers will be published in IEEE Xplore. 
The conference provides many opportunities for informal interaction through social events, including the planned welcome reception in the Gotland Museum on August 25, guided city walk on August 26, and a workshop banquet on August 27
