The previous edition focused in particular on these issues:

Information theory, Algorithm, Decoding methods, Discrete mathematics and Upper and lower bounds are the subjects of interest in International Symposium on Information Theory.
The Information theory works featured in International Symposium on Information Theory incorporate elements from Theoretical computer science, Combinatorics, Set (abstract data type), Applied mathematics and Server.
International Symposium on Information Theory encompasses Server studies in the context of Computer network as a whole.

While work presented in International Symposium on Information Theory provided substantial information on Algorithm, it also covered topics in Encoding (memory), Communication channel, Binary number, Code (cryptography) and Coding (social sciences).
The study of Topology and how it intertwines with concepts under Channel capacity were explored in the presented Communication channel research.
Issues in Upper and lower bounds were discussed, taking into consideration concepts from other disciplines like Function (mathematics) and Gaussian.

The most cited articles from the last conference are:

Numerically stable coded matrix computations via circulant and rotation matrix embeddings (24 citations)

Memory Approximate Message Passing (8 citations)

Impact of Packet Loss Rate Estimation on Blockwise Adaptive Recoding for Batched Network Coding (7 citations)

Papers citation over time

A key indicator for each conference is its effectiveness in reaching other researchers with the papers published at that venue.

Publication chance based on affiliation

The publication chance index shows the ratio of articles published by the best research institutions at the conference edition to all articles published within that conference. The best research institutions were selected based on the largest number of articles published during all editions of the conference.

The chart below presents the percentage ratio of articles from top institutions (based on their ranking of total papers).Top affiliations were grouped by their rank into the following tiers: top 1-10, top 11-20, top 21-50, and top 51+. Only articles with a recognized affiliation are considered.

Research.com

During the most recent 2021 edition, 1.05% of publications had an unrecognized affiliation. Out of the publications with recognized affiliations, 22.91% were posted by at least one author from the top 10 institutions publishing at the conference. Another 15.99% included authors affiliated with research institutions from the top 11-20 affiliations. Institutions from the 21-50 range included 20.43% of all publications and 40.67% were from other institutions.

Returning Authors Index

A very common phenomenon observed among researchers publishing scientific articles is the intentional selection of conferences they have already attended in the past. In particular, it is worth analyzing the case when the authors participate in the same conference from year to year.

The Returning Authors Index presented below illustrates the ratio of authors who participated in both a given as well as the previous edition of the conference in relation to all participants in a given year.

The experience to innovation index

Our experience to innovation index was created to show a cross-section of the experience level of authors publishing at a conference. The index includes the authors publishing at the last edition of a conference, grouped by total number of publications throughout their academic career (P) and the total number of citations of these publications ever received (C).

The group intervals were selected empirically to best show the diversity of the authors' experiences, their labels were selected as a convenience, not as judgment. The authors were divided into the following groups:

Novice - P < 5 or C < 25 (the number of publications less than 5 or the number of citations less than 25),

Competent - P < 10 or C < 100 (the number of publications less than 10 or the number of citations less than 100),

Experienced - P < 25 or C < 625 (the number of publications less than 25 or the number of citations less than 625),

Master - P < 50 or C < 2500 (the number of publications less than 50 or the number of citations less than 2500),

Star - P ≥ 50 and C ≥ 2500 (both the number of publications greater than 50 and the number of citations greater than 2500).
