ISIT Liveblog: July 9

11:02 AM: Interesting plenary by Robert Gray on source coding -- it's not really my field, so I was lost on some of the more technical discussion, but it was a nice overview of his work.

12:06 PM: A couple of interesting talks by Urbanke's students on the scaling law for finite-length LDPC code analysis. I was unaware of this work, which has been around since 2003, but it looks like an efficient and accurate way to estimate the performance of short LDPC codes.

It's a half day today, so that's it for the conference until tomorrow ...
