Beyond IID in Information Theory 8
November 9 - 13 (online event via Zoom)
"Beyond IID in Information Theory" started as a workshop in Cambridge, UK seven years ago, organized by Nilanjana Datta and Renato Renner as a forum for the growing interest in information-theoretic problems and techniques beyond the strict asymptotic limit, and aimed at bringing together researchers from a range of different backgrounds, ranging from coding theory, Shannon theory in the finite blocklength regime, one-shot information theory, cryptography and quantum information, all the way to quantum thermodynamics and other resource theories.
The present workshop, the eighth in a series that started in 2013 in Cambridge, will bring together specialists and students of classical and quantum Shannon theory, of cryptography, mathematical physics, thermodynamics, etc., in the hope to foster collaboration in this exciting field of one-shot information theory and its applications. The plan is to have a modest number of talks over the course of the week. Participation is open to all.
