Two researchers supported by CSoI (Yury Polyanskiy and Sergio Verdú) are co-authors of Y. Polyanskiy, H. V. Poor and S. Verdú,“Channel Coding Rate in the Finite Blocklength Regime,” IEEE Trans. Information Theory, vol. 56, no. 5, pp. 2307-2359, May 2010. The paper has just received the 2011 Information Theory Best Paper Award.
The same team of Polyanskiy, Poor, and Verdú won the 2010 Student Paper Award from IEEE a year earlier with "Variable-length coding feedback in the non-asymptotic regime".
