2017 AusCTW
2017 Australian Communications Theory Workshop (AusCTW)

Australian National University — 18–20 January 2017

 2017 Australian Communications Theory Workshop (AusCTW)

The 17th Australian Communications Theory Workshop (AusCTW) will be hosted by the Australian National University on 18-20 January, 2017. The 2017 AusCTW will bring together researchers and post-graduate students in physical layer communications, signal processing, coding, and information theory. During two and a half days, the Workshop will feature 3 keynote talks by world-class researchers, invited technical oral presentations, and poster presentations. Past workshops have provided formal and informal environments to successfully foster collaborative research.

Student Travel Grants Now Open

AusCTW 2017 is pleased to offer about 10-15 travel grants to students who will register and attend AusCTW 2017 (early career researches are also encouraged to apply). Application deadline: December 11, 2016. Please see Travel Grants for more details.

Important Changes to AusCTW 2017 Program Format

As per endorsement of the AusCTW Steering Committee, AusCTW 2017 will not include peer-reviewed papers in its technical program. Instead, the Workshop is devoted to high quality keynote talks, invited talks, open-call poster presentations and an exciting new research thesis pitch competition.

Posters can feature unpublished or recently published/submitted research work. Abstracts submitted for posters are not subject to peer review and will only appear in the Workshop media. Hence, a poster presentation does not interfere with any potential publication plan. The thesis pitch competition is an excellent opportunity for graduating PhD/MPhil students to showcase their thesis research results and communication skills.

Please see the Call for Posters and 5-Minute Thesis Pitch Competition (5MTP) pages for more details.


AusCTW, which runs 18 to 20 January, 2017, is held in conjunction with the 2017 IEEE Australian Information Theory School (AusITS) from 16 to 17 January, 2017.
