2017 Claude E. Shannon Award

July 2016

IEEE Information Theory Society announced that David Tse will be awarded the 2017 Claude E. Shannon Award. The Shannon Award honors consistent and profound contributions to the field of information theory. Announced during the 2016 IEEE International Symposium on Information Theory in Barcelona, Professor Tse was humbled and gratefully acknowledged the distinction.

David Tse is a leading figure in Information Theory & Applications. He has received numerous best paper awards from information theory, communications, signal processing and networking communities. His work is incorporated in cellular wireless standards. He also co-authored the text, "Fundamentals of Wireless Communication", which has influenced generations of wireless engineers and researchers. His research at Stanford focuses on applying information theory to computational biology and machine learning.

The Claude E. Shannon Award is the highest honor from the IEEE Information Theory Society. The award recognizes consistent and profound contributions to the field of information theory. We proudly congratulate David Tse for this very well deserved recognition.

David will be the Shannon Lecturer at the 2017 IEEE International Symposium on Information Theory in Aachen, Germany.
