What is ITaS 2016?

"Information Technologies and Systems" (ITaS) is the annual interdisciplinary School and Conference of the Kharkevich Institute for Information Transmission Problems (IITPRAS). Back in 1966 the Institute, then under the aegis of the USSR Academy of Sciences, organized its first young scientists' conference, which since then became annual and took place thirty times until 1995. Then, after some hiatus, the tradition was resumed in 2007 when the conference was re-baptized with its current name, ITaS.The conference has spread far beyond IITP RAS, each year gathering hundreds of young scientists from leading Russian and foreign research centres and universities. In various years ITaS co-organizers included MIPT, NRU HSE, Lobachevsky NNSU, Immanuel Kant BFU. This edition is made in cooperation with Skoltech and NRU HSE.

ITaS provides scientists with a unique opportunity to exchange their research experience, to stimulate new ideas and discoveries. Young scientists from IITP RAS and other institutes can present their research results, attend the lectures given by leading scientists from all around the world and discuss the current open problems in diverse areas related to information transmission and processing in live and technical systems. Our recent guests include Chief Executive and Technical Officers from leading international companies, such as Airbus Group (formerly EADS), Worldsensing, Quantenna, the Russian department of Huawei, and Skolkovo resident companies, including Telum and Datadvance. Over the last 4 years ITaS has become a hospitable ecosystem for meetings of innovation companies' management and for “senior” theme conferences such as WiFlex 2013 and Yarbus 100 (2014).

ITaS, the multidisciplinary conference, includes various formats of interactive learning: from those common in academia to less formal ones, and up to truly innovative. Here the links between the fundamental research and the applied development are strengthened, here connections between different generations of researchers revitalize, here new theories and startups are born. Come participate in ITaS, a conference and school at the forefront of Russian science!

What is special about the School-Conference ITaS 2016?

This year ITaS celebrates three anniversaries at a time.

  • First, the ITaS conference turns 50.
  • Second, it is the 40th edition.
  • Third, this the the 10th edition under the current title and in the current format.

The most important anniversaries is the 100th Birthday of Claude Shannon, the founder of information theory. That is why the conferense focuses on the information transmission and processing problems.

The 40th interdisciplinary School-Conference “Information Technologies and Systems” is dedicated to the most significant challenges in information technologies. These challenges are divided into 4 platforms:

The following events are planned within the bounds of each platform:

  • keynotes given by world renowned scientists (lectures will range from introductory, needed for multidisciplinary research, to in-depth accounts of specific issues),
  • scientific sessions, where young scientists will present their research results,
  • poster sessions,
  • panels and round tables dedicated to the most important issues of scientific and technological advance,
  • expert sessions led by leaders of scientific organizations and representatives of knowledge-intensive business.

Participants of the ITaS school-conference will also be able to visit the Problems of redundancy in information and control systems and the The 16th International Conference on Next Generation Wired/Wireless Advansed Networks and Systems which will be held simultaneously with ITaS.

A special “My first paper” session will be organized for the youngest participants of the conference.

Proceedings of ITaS 2016 will be indexed by Russian Science Citation Index. Proceedings of colocated events will be published separately and indexed in Web of Science and/or Scopus.
