The Information Systems Laboratory (ISL) in the
Electrical Engineering Department
at Stanford University
includes around 30 faculty members, 150 PhD students, and 150 MS students.
Research in ISL focuses on algorithms for information processing,
their mathematical underpinnings, and a broad range of applications.
Core topics include information theory and coding, control and optimization,
signal processing, and learning and statistical inference.
ISL has active interdisciplinary programs with colleagues
in Electrical Engineering, Computer
Science, Statistics, Management Science, Aeronautics and Astronautics,
Computational and Mathematical Engineering, Biological Sciences, Psychology,
