Information coding is the key for modern communications, and coding is founded on mathematics. For example, classic channel codes are founded on linear algebra, while modern channel codes have been facilitated by probability theory and graph theory. The understanding of network coding requires both linear algebra and graph theory. This workshop aims to look back at the mathematics that we have used for designing and practicing codes, so that we can better look forward. This will be a hybrid conference where overseas scholars will participate online, and domestic ones will be onsite. All are welcome!
