Travel Award in Information Theory 2019
As Editor-in-Chief of Entropy and on behalf of the Evaluation Committee, I am pleased to announce the winner of the 2019 Entropy Travel Award in the field of Information Theory.
Zahra Baghali Khanian is PhD student at ICFO Barcelona and UAB Barcelona under the supervision of Prof. Andreas Winter and Prof. Maciek Lewenstien. She works on quantum Shannon theory and applications in quantum information. She is planning to present her works “Distributed Compression of Correlated Classical-Quantum Sources: The Price of Ignorance” and “Entanglement-Assisted Quantum Data Compression” at the 2019 IEEE International Symposium on Information Theory (ISIT2019, 7–12 July 2019, Paris, France). The award consists of 800 Swiss Francs to be used to attend this conference.
With so many high-quality applicants, it was a very difficult decision, and we thank all the applicants. We wish to congratulate Ms. Zahra Baghali Khanian for her accomplishments.
