The 2017 IEEE Information Theory Workshop will take place in Kaohsiung, Taiwan, from November 6 to 10, 2017. Based at the southern tip of the island and facing the Taiwan Strait, Kaohsiung is the second largest city in Taiwan and is one of the major seaports in Asia. Love-River cruises, night markets, delicious seafood, and day tours out into nature or to historic Tainan are some of the many attractions awaiting you in Southern Taiwan. Situated directly by the waterfront, the Kaohsiung Exhibition Center (KEC) serves as workshop venue. It is a brand-new and multi-functional facility, designed by an international, pro-environment team of architects and built in a shape reminding of a billowing sail. The workshop participants will have an unforgettable experience visiting and enjoying some of the most dazzling attractions in Kaohsiung.
