The 2021 IEEE Information Theory Workshop (ITW2021) is currently scheduled to be held October 17-21, 2021 as a hybrid in-person/online event.

Paper and tutorial submission deadline: May, 14, 2021 (extended)

The in-person component will be held at Kanazawa Bunka Hall in Kanazawa, Japan. If it becomes necessary to hold an online-only event, every effort will be made to provide networking opportunities and an interactive experience, while remaining a venue for dissemination of top-quality research in information theory.

Kanazawa is located in the middle of Honshu, the main island of Japan, and can conveniently be reached by train or airplane from Tokyo. Bordered by the Sea of Japan and the Japanese Alps, Kanazawa was also recognized as the world’s first UNESCO Creative City in the field of crafts and folk art. Kanazawa Bunka Hall is centrally located in Kanazawa, with easy access to hotels, restaurants and transportation.

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
