General Theory of Information Theory and Combinatorics
Date: April 26 - 29, 2004
Organizers: Prof. Rudolf Ahlswede (Bielefeld), Dr. Lars Bäumer (Bielefeld)
This conference will be the final conference of the ZiF:Research Group General Theory of Information Transfer and Combinatorics. The main topics of the conference will be:
- Animal Communication
- Cryptography and Number Theory
- Data Structures, Data Compression and Statistics
- Identification, Common Randomness and General Theory of Information Transfer
- Pattern Discovery
- Quantum Information Theory
- Search and Combinatorics
This time the format of the meeting will be a new one: Each day the morning sessions will focus on a certain topic with eight 30 minutes lectures starting at 8.30h and ending at 13.00h. Then the meeting continues in the late afternoon with several problem and discussion sessions, which will be held in parallel in smaller groups. Each of these sessions will focus on one of the topics mentioned above.
Papers contributed by participants will appear after refereeing in a special issue of a journal or in a book by the research group.
