ESIT 2024

IEEE European School of Information Theory

The IEEE European School of Information Theory (ESIT) is an annual educational event organized by the IEEE Information Theory Society for graduate students from institutes throughout Europe and beyond. The objective of the school is to provide participants with the opportunity

  1. to learn from distinguished lecturers by attending long-format (3 hour) tutorials,
  2. to present their own work to obtain feedback and to start up collaborations,
  3. to hear about applications of information theory in industry, and
  4. to participate in a stimulating and inviting forum of scientists.


ESIT 2024 starts on Monday (July 1) and ends on Friday (July 5).


ESIT 2024 will be held in Eindhoven, the Netherlands. Eindhoven is a high-tech city in the south of the Netherlands and home to Philips, NXP Semiconductors, ASML, etc. The second largest airport in the Netherlands in terms of number of served passengers is located in Eindhoven with direct flights to Athens, where ISIT 2024 will be held on July 7-12. Eindhoven is connected to Amsterdam with a direct train (80 minutes).


The program includes a mix of tutorials (two 1.5-hour lectures), seminars (1-hour lectures) and industry sessions (1.5-hour sessions) by experts on topics of current interest in information theory and affiliated fields, e.g., communication and coding theory, machine learning and statistics, quantum information processing, information-theoretic security.

Poster Sessions

One of the goals of the ESIT is to promote interaction and collaboration among students. To this end, students are advised to present their work via a poster. Students who have just started their doctoral studies and have not yet obtained publishable results may also present the topic chosen for their thesis (including state-of-the-art and preliminary results). Posters will be presented in two separate sessions. There are no strict requirements for the poster format. Space will be available for hanging up to A0 size posters. You can send the title and a short abstract of your poster to before June 30.


The school is hosted by Information and Communication Theory Lab, Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e). The venue of the school is De Zwarte Doos located on TU/e campus.
