Information Theory Forum

The Information Theory Forum (IT-Forum) at Stanford ISL is an interdisciplinary academic forum which focuses on mathematical aspects of information processing. With a primary emphasis on information theory, we also welcome researchers from signal processing, learning and statistical inference, control and optimization to deliver talks at our forum. We also warmly welcome industrial affiliates in the above fields. The forum is typically held in Packard 202 every Friday at 1:00 pm during the academic year.

The Information Theory Forum is organized by graduate students Jiantao Jiao and Kartik Venkat. To suggest speakers, please contact any of the students.

To receive email notifications of seminars you can join our mailing list.

The IT-Forum was established in the 2012-2013 academic year by professors Sergio VerdĂș and Tsachy Weissman, when the former was visiting Stanford from Princeton University. Associated with it is an online blog hosted by Princeton University for the general IT community to share and discuss ideas.

The Information Theory Forum is sponsored by Stanford Computer Forum.
