The 2010 North American School of Information Theory was held Thursday, August 5, to Sunday, August 8, 2010, at USC in Los Angeles. The school offered graduate students and postdoctoral researchers the opportunity to learn from leading experts in information theory through short courses and talks as well as the chance to present their own work. Lecturers included Emmanuel Candès, Andrea Goldsmith, Alon Orlitsky, Rüdiger Urbanke, Sergio Verdú, and Jack Wolf. Jack Wolf was the second Padovani Lecturer of the IEEE Information Theory Society and gave his lecture at the School. The Padovani Lecture is sponsored by a generous gift of Roberto Padovani. Thanks to the generous support from our sponsors including the USC Ming Hsieh Institute, we were able to accommodate a record number of 178 students.
