Information Theory and Coding Theory with Applications to Data Security and Privacy
May 15 - May 19, 2017
Information theory and coding theory have been instrumental in shaping our modern digital world. Traditionally, information theory describes fundamental limits on the essential performance parameters of communication and storage systems, as they relate to the physical characteristics of the system, while coding theory is concerned with mathematical methods for designing practical systems that approach these fundamental performance limits.
In this conference we focus on how to apply information and coding theory towards providing security and privacy in systems. We will gather researchers and practitioners in information and coding theory and in network security and privacy, with the goals of identifying open security and privacy problems that arise in networks and distributed storage systems and that can be effectively solved by proper coding techniques.
