Recent progress in the theory of error correcting codes has been driven in part by new mathematical breakthroughs and techniques. Notable examples include recent results about epsilon-biased codes; the performance of Reed-Muller (RM) codes on the BSC; new results on the combinatorial properties (including list-decodability) of both RS and RM codes and their variants; application of sum-of-squares methods to decoding; and breakthroughs in coding for interactive communication. This workshop will bring together researchers working on these and related topics to collaborate and to share ideas and techniques.

Please note: the Simons Institute regularly captures photos and video of activity around the Institute for use in videos, publications, and promotional materials. 


Registration is required to attend this workshop in person or for access to the livestream and recordings. Seating is first come, first served.
