Organized by the IEEE Information Theory Society, the Shannon Centenary (2016) marks the life and influence of Claude Shannon on the hundredth anniversary of his birth on 30 April 1916. 
Shannon is best known for developing the mathematical foundations of communication (establishing the field of information theory), data compression, digital computers, cryptography, circuit complexity, flow networks, and juggling—as well as laying foundations of artificial intelligence, and human-computer interaction.
