Coding theory has long been known to have applications to storage, starting from the use of Reed Solomon codes in CDs. The range of applications of information and coding theory to storage has been widening over the years, and now encompasses different layers and areas of storage technologies, such as flash memories, RAID systems or networked distributed storage systems.

The goal of this special issue is to provide a platform for information and coding theorists to publish recent results in the broad area of information and coding theory for data storage.

Subject Coverage
Suitable topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Channel models for memories and storage
  • Erasure codes and error correction codes for storage
  • Network coding for distributed storage systems
  • Array codes
  • Coding for flash memories
