SP Coding and Information School

The SPCodingSchool is a two week long school on coding and information theory which will be held in Brazil in January 2015. Leading researchers in the area will give both introductory courses (during the first week) and advanced courses (in the second one). The introductory courses are aimed to students that have consistent mathematical background but are not necessarily acquainted with coding and information theory. Besides the mini-courses and selected lectures, participants will be enrolled as teams in research problems that will be presented in advance.
