ISITA2020 Welcome

Important Notice

ISITA2020 will be held on October 24-27, as planned. Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, the organizing committee is currently considering whether to run ISITA 2020 as a hybrid of on-site and online symposium or to make it a fully online symposium. In any case, authors of accepted papers must register for the symposium and submit their final manuscript; in addition, they will be required to upload their virtual presentation video. Details will be announced as soon as possible. Since the participants' safety is our top concern, we will continue to monitor the situation and will announce any changes on the web site.

ISITA2020 — October 24–27, 2020 — Kapolei, Hawai’i, USA

The International Symposium on Information Theory and Its Applications (ISITA) is a leading conference on information theory. ISITA is a forum for interdisciplinary interaction, gathering leading researchers to discuss topics of common interest in the field of information theory. In 2020, ISITA marks the 30th anniversary of the first symposium.  It is also the return of the symposium to Hawai'i, where ISITA was first held in 1990, as well as in 2000 and 2012.

ISITA 2020 creates a setting for international exchange with the aloha spirit, to provide a place for individuals, especially students, to know the joy of research, and to share new results in information theory and its applications with the world.

The venue for ISITA2020 is Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa in Kapolei, Hawai'i on the island of Oahu. Aulani is a family-friendly hotel and resort which features numerous included amenities, such as a variety of swimming pools, slides and streams; the kids club Aunty's Beach House and 'ukulele lessons. Located on the scenic Ko Olina Beach, Aulani has easy access to kayaking, paddleboarding and snorkeling. The traditions of Hawai’i are celebrated with fireside storytelling, the luau and Hawaiian art and design throughout the resort.  Aulani is 20 miles from Honolulu's Daniel K. Inouye International Airport.
