The 2021 IEEE Information Theory Workshop (ITW2021) will be held October 17-21, 2021, as a virtual event.  Originally planned to be held in Kanazawa, Japan, the format has changed to a virtual event due to the continuing COVID-19 pandemic. ITW2021 remains a venue for dissemination of top-quality research in information theory. Updates about the virtual format will be provided as details become available.

We seek original contributions in all areas of information theory and coding, including but not limited to :
– Low-Latency Communications
– Information-Theoretic Security
– Machine Learning for Communications
– Codes in the Cloud
