Invited keynote speakers

  • Xavier Mestre (CTTC, Telecommunications Technological Center of Catalonia, Barcelona)
    Random matrix theory for signal processing
  • Tijl De Bie (Universiteit Gent, Electronics and Information System & University of Bristol)
    Exploratory data mining: an information-theoretic perspective


The Proceedings of the 37th Symposium on Information Theory in the Benelux and the 6th Joint WIC/IEEE Symposium on Information Theory and Signal Processing in the Benelux, edited by François Glineur and Jérôme Louveaux (ISBN 978-2-9601884-0-0) can be downloaded by following this link.
The list of participants can also be found here.


Every talk in the oral sessions will be 15 minutes long, followed by 5 minutes for questions and transition to the next speaker.
Posters will be hanged in vertical position, and will have (at most) A0-dimensions.
A printable version of the program can be downloaded from this link.

Talks will take place in the André Oleffe room, located on the second floor in the Halles building (Place de l'Université). Registration, coffee breaks and lunches will take place on the lower level (first floor in the same building).
