9th International Conference on Information Theoretic Security
9-12 August 2016, Tacoma, Washington, USA.
This is the ninth in a series of conferences that aims to bring together the leading researchers in the areas of information theory, quantum information theory, and cryptography. ICITS covers all aspects of information- theoretic security, from relevant mathematical tools to theoretical modeling to implementation. ICITS is an event in cooperation with The International Association for Cryptologic Research (IACR). Papers on all technical aspects of these topics are solicited for submission. Areas of interest include, but are not restricted to:
Physical layer security
Codes, lattices & cryptography
Quantum information theory
Key and message rates
Physical models & assumptions
Adversarial channel models
Cryptography from noisy channels
Nonlocality and nonsignaling
Network coding security
Information-theoretic tools in computational settings
Conference track submission deadline: 25th of January, 2016
Workshop track submission deadline: 25th of January, 2016
Decision notification: 2nd of May, 2016
Conference: 9-12 of August, 2016
Note: ICITS 2016 takes place right before Crypto 2016
Two Tracks: Conference and Workshop
As the goal of ICITS is to bring together researchers on all aspects of information-theoretic security, it consists of two tracks with different types of contributed presentations:
Conference Track (with proceedings): Submissions to this track must be original papers that have not previously appeared in published form. Accepted papers will be presented at the conference and will appear in the conference proceedings. The proceedings will be published by Springer-Verlag in its Lecture Notes in Computer Science Series.
Workshop Track (no proceedings): To encourage presentation of work from a variety of fields (especially those where conference publication is unusual or makes journal publication difficult), the committee also solicits “workshop track” papers. Accepted papers will be presented orally at the conference but will not appear in the proceedings. Submissions to this track that have previously appeared (or are currently submitted elsewhere) are acceptable, as long as they first appeared after January 1, 2016. Papers that describe work in progress are also welcome. We note that the same standards of quality will apply to conference and workshop papers.
