The 1997 IEEE International Symposium on Information Theory will be held at the Maritim Hotel and Congress Center in Ulm, Germany from Sunday evening, June 29, 1997 through Friday afternoon, July 4, 1997. Detailed information on accommodations, travel arrangements, excursions and the technical program will be included in subsequent mailings.

Papers presenting new results in the following areas are solicited:


Both long (40 minutes) and short (20 minutes) papers will be accepted. Long papers will be reviewed on the basis of a complete manuscript. Short papers will be reviewed on the basis of an extended abstract between 500 and 1000 words in length.

Papers may be submitted either by mail (four copies) or by Email.

Applications for such a support should be directed to Prof. Vinck. Inquiries on general matters related to the Symposium should be addressed to either of the Co-Chairs:
