Fog Computing and Communications: Technology and Economics
This Workshop is the first workshop on fog computing in Hong Kong. Fog computing is advocated to supplement cloud computing. It is more distributed to be closer to end users and hence has shorter latency and response time, which is critical to many applications. The program covers practical Physical-Layer Network Coding (PNC), edge mesh network that enables scalable connectivity and distributed intelligence for IoT, shared fog networks, computation offlloading, etc.

The lectures, which cover topics in the theory of computation and communications, will be delivered by renowned professors. Besides, there will be a city exploration tour for the participants on the last day of the programme.
Undergraduate students of computer science and electrical engineering from universities across Asia are welcome to apply. Invitations will be sent to a selected number of students based on the quality of your application and budgetary considerations. Should you be invited, ITCSC and INC will cover your round-trip airfare to Hong Kong, your accommodation, and your meals.

The workshop aims to create a platform for prominent researchers, primarily from Germany and China, to exchange their latest research results in Network Coding and wireless communications, paving the way for high-impact international collaborations in the near future.
EASIT 2014 – East Asian School of Information Theory
The First East Asian School of Information Theory 2014 will be held in Hong Kong, immediately after ISIT 2014. A city where East meets West, Hong Kong is world-famous for the spectacular skyline and the magnificent night view. The Summer School will take place at the Chinese University of Hong Kong.
ITCSC-INC Winter School 2014
ITCSC-INC Winter School 2014 will be held from January 20 – 23, 2014 at The Chinese University of Hong Kong and is co-organized by Institute of Theoretical Computer Science and Communications (ITCSC) and Institute of Network Coding (INC). It is a 4-day programs that will combine academic learning, cultural exchange, and community exploration. It is a great opportunity to find out about Hong Kong’s academic environment, meet talented students from across Asia, and explore an interesting city.
The workshop aims at providing a platform for researchers, scientists, engineers, academics and professionals to present their recent research work and to explore future trends in various areas of coding and information theory.

Workshop on Distributed Storage Systems and Coding for BigData
Mass storage is critical in the era of BigData. Dispersing a huge data file in a large-scale distributed storage system is necessary in order to enhance reliability and availability. By introducing redundancy in the system, we can protect the data integrity from node failures. As node failures occur frequently in large-scale storage system, a considerable volume of Internet traffic is dedicated to the repair of failed storage nodes. Several classes of distributed storage codes, such as regenerating codes, locally repairable codes and so on, are introduced recently to reduce this overhead and disk input/output cost. Nevertheless, there still remains substantial research work for advancing distributed storage coding and systems in both theory and applications. This workshop will provide a platform for academic researcher and industrial engineers to discuss and share their recent works and practical experiences.
Second Workshop of Software Radio Implementation Forum (SRIF 2013) – An ACM Sigcomm Workshop
SRIF 2013 aims to bring together practitioners and researchers of software-defined radio in academia and industry to share the latest development, experiences, and insights, lively collaborations between academia and industry. In particular, the workshop aims to
(i) reach out to industrial participants to share their best practices; and
(ii) expose the state-of-the-art wireless research based on SDR to industrial participants in order to seek feedback.
The topics of interest include but are not limited to the following:
* New hardware and software architectures for software radio platforms
* New programming model of SDR
* New PHY and MAC primitives and abstractions
* Prototypes of novel wireless systems on SDR
* State-of-the-art performance of wireless systems on SDR
* New applications of SDR (e.g., security, localization, RFID, biomedical applications, etc.)
* Theory versus practice (e.g., comparison of what is achievable in theory and what has been achieved in practice)
* New ideas that challenge the existing practices
* WLAN and LTE cellular networks with SDR
* Prototypes on platforms other than SDR
First Workshop on Entropy and Information Inequalities
