Spring 2015

Add to Calendar


Venkat Guruswami (Carnegie Mellon University), David Tse (Stanford University)

This reunion workshop is for long-term participants in the program "Information Theory" held in the Spring 2015 semester. It will provide an opportunity to meet old and new friends. Moreover, we hope that it will give everyone a chance to reflect on the progress made during the semester and since, and sketch which directions the field should go in in the future. In an effort to keep things informal and to encourage open discussion, none of the activities will be recorded.  Participation in the workshop is by invitation only.

Support is gratefully acknowledged from:
