The 2021 IEEE Information Theory Workshop (ITW2021) will be held as a virtual event.
2021 IEEE Information Theory Workshop
ITW2021 is venue for dissemination of top-quality research in information theory. The workshop features 4 plenary talks and 4 invited sessions on focused topics within information theory. We have 4 tutorials and approximately 120 contributed presentations. Originally planned to be held in Kanazawa, Japan, the format has changed to a virtual event due to the continuing COVID-19 pandemic.
We are excited to welcome plenary presentations by four distinguished speakers on emerging topics of information theory, including finite-blocklength information theory, communications with model-based learning, and information-theoretic security.

Tutorial: Code-Based Cryptography
Currently-used public-key cryptosystems based on number-theoretic problems are threatened by the possibility that large-scale quantum computers will be built in the near future; Shor’s algorithm is
Tutorial: Design and Decoding of Polar Codes with Large Kernels
Polar codes with large kernels were recently shown to asymptotically achieve optimal scaling exponent. However, these codes were believed to be impractical due to lack of efficient decoding algori
Plenary: Coding for Distributed Information Systems: Adversarial Sources and Approximated Decoding
Coding is known as an effective approach to deal with some of the major challenges in distributed information systems in terms of security of the network, privacy of the data, and efficiency of the
