The IT Society has over 6000
members worldwide who share professional interests in areas including
coding theory; signal processing; communication and computer networks;
communication theory; complexity and cryptography; detection and
estimation theory; non-parametric estimation, classification, and
neural networks; Shannon theory; and source coding.
The IEEE Information Theory Society Field of Interest
is the processing, transmission, storage, and use of information,
and the foundations of the communication process. It specifically
encompasses theoretical and certain applied aspects of coding, communications
and communications networks, complexity and cryptography, detection
and estimation, learning, Shannon Theory, and stochastic processes.
As an active professional in Information Theory and
related areas, you will want to enjoy all of the privileges afforded
by the IT society to its members, including:
Transactions on Information Theory, which are widely
considered to be the most highly regarded journal in Information
Theory. MEMBERS GET ONLINE ACCESS TO THE DIGITAL LIBRARY WHICH CONTAINS
ALL ISSUES OF THE TRANSACTIONS. Each year there is an additional
special issue. In 1998, it was: "INFORMATION THEORY: 1948-1998
COMMEMORATIVE ISSUE" to appear in October 1998 to commemorate
the 50th anniversary of the publication of Claude Shannon's ground-breaking
paper,`` The Mathematical Theory of Communication''.
Information Theory Society Newsletter, a quarterly publication
which provides timely information on activities in Information Theory
and related areas. Interesting and informative sections include
tutorials, President's Column, Conference Calendar, Golomb's Puzzle
Column, Historian's Column, New Books, prize announcements, and
reports from various workshops/symposia.
A worldwide network of IT Chapters offering a continuous
program of technical and professional meetings.
Special rates to conferences,
workshops and symposia sponsored by the IT Society,
including the IEEE
International Symposium on Information Theory and
IT Workshops .
On behalf of the Board of Governors of the IT Society,
I encourage you to join our society. The IEEE page on joining the
society will direct you to all forms necessary for joining the Information
I would like to welcome you in advance to our society
and look forward to your contributions to the IT Society and the
