Aaron D. Wyner Distinguished Service Award

The Aaron D. Wyner Distinguished Service Award of the IT Society has been instituted to honor an individual who has shown outstanding leadership in, and provided long-standing, exceptional service to, the Information Theory community. Each Wyner Award winner receives an ISIT or ITW participation fee waiver, a specially engraved plague, and a certificate. This award was initiated as the IT Society Distinguished Service Award in 2004, but was renamed to the Aaron D. Wyner Distinguished Service Award in 2005.

The winners of the Distinguished Service Award are:

  • James L. Massey (2004)
  • Ian F. Blake (2005)
  • Anthony Ephremides (2006)
  • Jack Wolf (2007)
