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 1:15 pm during the academic year.

The Information Theory Forum is organized by graduate students Yanjun Han, Yihui Quek and Joachim Neu. To suggest speakers, please contact any of the students.

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

The Information Theory Forum is sponsored by Stanford Computer Forum. Recordings of talks can be found in the Information Theory Forum playlist of The Informaticist on YouTube.
