The Seventh Workshop on Information Theoretic Methods in Science and Engineering (WITMSE) will be held in Waikiki, Hawaii, USA, on July 5–7, 2014. The workshop will cover hot topics at the intersection of statistics, information theory, machine learning, and their applications. The technical program will include plenary lectures and invited talks.

WITMSE 2014 takes place right after the IEEE International Symposium on Information Theory (ISIT 2014), so that participants to ISIT can conveniently attend both events.
