IEEE International Symposium on Information Theory (ISIT) is the premier international conference dedicated to the advancement of information theory and related areas. It brings together an international community of researchers and practitioners each year in the field of information theory to present and discuss new research results and perspectives on future developments relevant to all areas of information theory, including big data analytics, source and channel coding, communication theory and systems, cryptography and security, detection and estimation, emerging applications, networks, network coding/information theory, signal processing, and statistical/machine learning.

Hosted by the IEEE Information Theory Society, the 2020 ISIT will feature contributed papers, the Shannon lecture and plenary talks, as well as tutorial sessions.

The city of Los Angeles (also known simply as L.A., and nicknamed the "City of Angels") is the most populous city in California. Located on a broad basin in Southern California, the city is surrounded by vast mountain ranges, valleys, forests, beautiful beaches along the Pacific Ocean, and nearby desert. Los Angeles is an important center of culture, medicine, agriculture, business, finance, energy, aerospace, science, food processing, media, international trade, and tourism. It is also home to University of Southern California (USC), University of California Los Angeles (UCLA), California Institute of Technology (Caltech), and NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL).

We invite you to the 2020 IEEE International Symposium on Information Theory!
