San Diego, CA, April 2, 2008 -- Missed the 2009 Information Theory and Applications Workshop at Calit2? If you weren't among the more than 500 people from around the world who crowded into Atkinson Hall and UCSD's Computer Science and Engineering Building for the week-long conference, there is an opportunity to catch up on some of the highlights.

In collaboration with the UCSD Division of Calit2, where it is based, the Information Theory and Applications (ITA) Center is opening up the webcast archive of talks recorded and replayed with permission of the speakers. (Names of presenters are in bold italics.) Archived webcasts of select panels and talks are now available for on-demand viewing [Windows Media Player and broadband connection required; click for information on the latest version, and on players for Mac and Linux users ].
