Welcome:

The Information Theory Society Japan Chapter aims to promote local activities in information theory and related fields. The chapter sponsors symposiums, workshops, technical meetings in cooperation with the SITA (Society of Information Theory and Its Applications) and/or the IEICE (Institute of Electronics, Information and Communication Engineers) in Japan. The chapter was organized originally as Tokyo Chapter in 1981, and reorganized as Japan Chapter in 1999. The chapter has more than 370 members including fellows, senior members, and student members.
