Workshop Schedule Information theory bridges mathematics and communication systems analysis. The point-to-point communication problem is fairly well understood today: researchers have developed a refined set of tools for designing and optimizing codes and protocols. In stark contrast, the analysis of communication networks is still a wide open problem because of the complex nature of the interactions permitted by multi-terminal systems. Our lack of understanding is reflected by the fact that most state-of-the-art communication networks are planned using point-to-point principles, and network considerations enter only at a later stage of design.
Designing resource-efficient wireless networks requires a fundamental understanding of the mathematics underlying multi-terminal communication systems. One of the simplest such systems is a “three-body problem,” with a source, a destination, and a relay whose purpose is to assist the communication from the source to the destination. This seemingly simple communication problem has long resisted solution, but new insight has been gained recently.
This workshop aims at bringing together researchers from engineering, computer science, and mathematics to discuss recent advances and promising directions for future research. In particular, the workshop will emphasize:
While leading researchers in each of these areas are being invited to participate in the workshop, submissions of contributed posters of original work in each of these areas are also being solicited. Posters will be reviewed on the basis of an extended abstract (not exceeding 3 pages), submitted in PDF format to firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline for submission is February 1, 2006, with notification of decisions by March 1, 2006. Download a PDF file of the workshop announcement. Sponsored by:Show less
To apply for funding, you must register by the funding application deadline displayed above.
Students, recent Ph.D.'s, women, and members of underrepresented minorities are particularly encouraged to apply. Funding awards are typically made 6 weeks before the workshop begins. Requests received after the funding deadline are considered only if additional funds become available.
MSRI does not hire an outside company to make hotel reservations for our workshop participants, or share the names and email addresses of our participants with an outside party. If you are contacted by a business that claims to represent MSRI and offers to book a hotel room for you, it is likely a scam. Please do not accept their services.
