A Message from the General co-Chairs:

We are expecting a large number of (good) submissions.
Since some people may have delayed their decision to submit, we extend the deadline by one more week, to allow people to complete their writing with less rush.

Let us take this opportunity to tell you that the conference venue, Mishkenot Sha’ananim, is a peaceful location, overlooking the beautiful old city of Jerusalem from the central (western) side of the city.

We expect an interesting and exciting event, a natural continuation of the ISIT and ITW’s held in Israel in the 70′s, 80′s and 90′s. We warmly welcome you to participate in ITW 2015!

The Information Theory Workshop (ITW) is an international conference on advances broadly related to the transmission, storage, processing and manipulation of information.

ITW 2015 will be held in Jerusalem, Israel in the spring of 2015. Workshop dates:

April 26-May 1, 2015

ITW 2015 is organized in cooperation with the IEEE Information Theory Society.

The conference will take place in Mishkenot Sha’ananim, located in Jerusalem, facing the Old City wall and offers a spectacular view of the Tower of David, the Old City walls and the Judean Desert.
