Welcome

The Canadian Workshop on Information Theory (CWIT) is a prestigious international conference on communications, information theory, and signal processing and data science.  The 17th CWIT conference will be held on the campus of University of Ottawa, Ontario, from June 5 to June 8, 2022. Albeit some uncertainty due to Covid, the current plan is to make the workshop an in-person event, an academic and social gathering that is long due to our community.
