ITSOC Distinguished Lecturers

The Information Theory Society established the Distinguished Lecturer Program to promote interest in information theory by supporting chapters who wish to invite prominent information theory researchers to give talks at their events. Distinguished Lecturers are selected by the Membership and Chapters (MC) Committee in consultation with the Board of Governors. The Society aims to maintain ten Distinguished Lecturers each serving for two year terms.

A chapter desiring to invite a Distinguished Lecturer should submit a proposal to the Membership Committee Chair indicating

- the benefit to the chapter,
plans for interaction by the local members with the Distinguished Lecturer, and
- the chapter's plan for ensuring vigorous attendance.

If the MC Committee accepts the request and if the Distinguished Lecturer accepts the invitation, the MC Committee Chair will approve a Distinguished Lecturer event with an appropriate level of expense reimbursement (usually partial travel costs).

The value of the program will be assessed through feedback from the chapters and the Distinguished Lecturers. Comments and feedback on the program are always welcome, please contact the MC Committee Chair.
