2021 IEEE North American School of Information Theory


Please check out this brief Welcome video with a few words about the school and logistics from the organizers.


Tutorials including Q&A will be synchronous events, without recording.

We would like to encourage interactions between tutorial speakers and (student) attendees, in the spirit of the School with and for students, and similar to the in-person NASIT events. Therefore we will also not record sessions.

Questions can be asked during the tutorials, and tutorial moderators will help with asking and addressing questions that have been posted in the chat.
