ITG Specialist Group: »Applied Information Theory«


24.01.2003 in Erlangen


The aim of the specialist group "Applied Information Theory" is to improve and intensify contacts between working groups at universities and research institutions that are scientifically active in this field. In particular, the specialist group is intended to provide a forum for young scientists (Ph. D. candidates) to present their results at a national level in a relaxed atmosphere and to gain experience in the process. Furthermore the AIT strives for the formation of interdisciplinary teams that jointly work on a research topic from different perspectives.

Activities and Organisation

The meetings of the specialist group (specialist group meeting) take place approximately every six months, i.e. one specialist group meeting per semester is aimed for. The specialist group meetings last one day (approx. 9:00 - 17:00) and usually begin with a joint dinner and a cosy get-together the day before. A chair or research institution invites the members of the specialist group and takes over about half of the scientific programme. The organiser also determines the main topic of the specialist group meeting. Further short presentations (on any topic of applied information theory and in the style of a 'recent results session') complete the programme. Copies of the presentation slides are usually distributed to the participants of the special interest group meeting as 'conference proceedings'.
