ITW 2009 : IEEE Information Theory Workshop on Networking and Information Theory
Call For Papers
The 2009 IEEE Information Theory Workshop on Networking and Information Theory (ITW 2009, Volos) will take place on June 10-12 in Volos, Greece. Located on the Aegean coast, midway between Athens and Thessaloniki, Volos is easily reachable by car and rail. It is surrounded by numerous seaside and mountain attractions of unique beauty, while the Sporades Archipelago islands are within a short high speed boat ride from
Its purpose is to be a forum for technical exchange among scientists and engineers working on fundamentals of networking and/or other areas of information theory, and, in particular, to promote cross-fertilization between those with interests primarily in networking and those with interests primarily in other parts of information theory.
There will be both invited and contributed sessions. Papers for the contributed sessions are solicited, but not limited to, the following areas:
* Topics in networks:
* Peer-to-peer systems
* Cross-layer optimization
* Game theory
* Other Information Theory:
* Coding theory and practice
* Communication theory
* Detection and estimation
* Information theory and statistics
* Multi-terminal information theory
* Pattern recognition and learning
* Shannon theory
* Source Coding
Contributions spanning networks and other areas of information theory are particularly encouraged, and authors not ordinarily attending information theory conferences are especially welcome.
Abstracts up to 5 pages should be submitted by December 16, 2008, following the guidelines on the workshop webpage. Authors will be notified of acceptance decisions by February 28, 2009. The final version, to be published in the workshop proceedings, will be due by April 5, 2009.
