Beyond IID in Information Theory 8

Loading Events

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, but the organizers request that everyone interested in attending does register.


The topics covered under “Beyond IID” include but are not limited to the following:

  • Finite block length coding
  • Second, third and fourth order analysis
  • Strong converses
  • Quantum ​Shannon theory
  • Cryptography and quantum cryptography
  • New information tasks
  • One-shot information theory and unstructured channels
  • Information spectrum method
  • Entropy inequalities
  • Non-standard entropies (e.g. Rényi entropies, min-entropy, …)
  • Matrix analysis
  • Thermodynamics
  • Resource theories of asymmetry
  • Generalized resource theories
  • Physics of information
