Recent progress in the theory of error correcting codes has been driven in part by new mathematical breakthroughs and techniques. Notable examples include recent results about epsilon-biased codes; the performance of Reed-Muller (RM) codes on the BSC; new results on the combinatorial properties (including list-decodability) of both RS and RM codes and their variants; application of sum-of-squares methods to decoding; and breakthroughs in coding for interactive communication. This workshop will bring together researchers working on these and related topics to collaborate and to share ideas and techniques.
