Schools of Information Theory are short workshops aimed towards giving students an educational experience that will introduce them to new research frontiers in Information Theory.
List of Schools
Annual summer school organized in India
The School of Information Theory will bring together over 100 graduate students, postdoctoral scholars, and leading researchers for four action-packed days of learning, stimulating discussions, professional networking and fun activities, all on the beautiful campus of the University of California, San Diego (UCSD) and in the nearby beach town of La Jolla.
The 7th Summer School on Signal Processing, Communications, and Networks Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore July 20-23, 2015
2015 European School of Information Theory (ESIT 2015)
SPCodingSchool is a two week long school on coding and Information Theory, to be held in Brazil in January 2013. Leading researchers in the area will give both introductory courses (during the first week) and advanced courses (in the second one). The introductory courses are aimed to students that have consistent mathematical background but not necessarily acquainted with Coding and Information Theory.
Up to 90 selected students will be fully supported (flight ticket plus generous expenses) through a grant given by Fapesp, the Science Foundation of the State of São Paulo.
The 2014 Center for Science of Information Summer School, will be hosted at the University of California, San Diego from Monday evening, August 4th to Friday noon, August 8th, 2014. The school provides a venue where doctoral and postdoctoral students can meet to learn from distinguished professors, and form friendships and collaborations. Advanced undergraduates and M.S. students are also welcome. This year the school will introduce several interdisciplinary life science topics connected with the emerging field of science of information. Students will present their own research via a poster session during the school. Interdisciplinary topics are encouraged. A professional development session on diversity & success will be offered with a panel of scientists including Robert Gray, (Professor Emeritus at Stanford University) Shannon Award winner, IEEE Centennial, and Millennium award winner. A separate, but concurrent, workshop for faculty will be held during afternoons of August 6-7. The topic is teaching a science of information style course or module.

The 2014 IEEE North American School on Information Theory (NASIT) will be held at the Fields Institute in Toronto, Canada on June 18-21.
