Results of Survey on the Future Format of ISIT
Nov 27, 2021

During the May to June time frame in 2021, the ITSoc conducted a survey on the possible format of future ISITs. The survey received 794 responses. 

The preamble to the survey was as follows: “The pandemic has made us aware of the advantages of incorporating an online component to most activities. By a hybrid ISIT, we mean an IEEE International Symposium on Information Theory (ISIT) in which some attendees, including the presenters of accepted papers, attend in person and some attend virtually, a recorded video presentation of each accepted paper is made available to all registrants and authors attending virtually will participate in synchronous live sessions. The survey seeks your opinion on the format of such a hybrid ISIT that might be held in the future. In answering this survey, please assume that we are in the post-pandemic era. When we speak below of an ISIT over 1+5 days, we mean an ISIT where tutorials are held on Day 1 followed by the remaining sessions over the next 5 days.”
