Call for Papers

The 12th International Symposium on Topics in Coding* will be held from Monday September 4th to Friday September 8th, 2023, in Brest, France. The symposium will be an opportunity to acquire a broad overview of the current status of advanced research in all areas of coding theory and its applications. All original contributions will be considered, in both theoretical and applied fields. Topics for submission include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Error-control coding
  • Turbo, LDPC, polar, and product-like codes
  • Coded modulation
  • Code design for short-packet communications
  • High-throughput decoding
  • Hardware and software implementations
  • Performance bounds
  • Iterative equalization and detection
  • Message-passing algorithms
  • Joint source-channel coding
  • Coding for optical communications
  • Coding for wireless communications
  • Coding for storage and computation
  • Quantum error correction
  • Multi-user coding techniques
  • Machine learning applied to codes and decoders design

In addition, papers that broaden the reach of coding, including emerging fields and novel applications of coding, are encouraged. The symposium will include regular papers for oral and poster sessions as well as invited papers. Accepted and presented papers/posters will appear in the symposium proceedings and in IEEEXplore. Instructions on how to submit a special session proposal are available on this page.

* Formerly the International Symposium on Turbo Codes & Iterative Information Processing.
