Instructions for Authors

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 must not substantially duplicate work published elsewhere or submitted in parallel to a journal or any other conference/workshop that has proceedings. The submission must be anonymous, with no author names, affiliations, or obvious references. The length of the submission must be at most 12 pages excluding bibliography and appendices. The text must be in a single column format, use at least 11-point fonts, and have reasonable margins. The submission should begin with a title and a short abstract. The introduction should summarize the contributions of the paper at a level appropriate for a non-specialist reader. Committee members are not required to read appendices; the paper should be intelligible without them. Submissions should preferably be in PDF format. 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): Authors may submit a paper published elsewhere or an original manuscript. As with the conference track, submissions should begin with a title and short abstract followed by an introduction that summarizes the contributions at a level appropriate for a non-specialist reader. Information about previous publication, if any, should be indicated on the first page of the submission. Beyond these guidelines no specific format is required. In particular, (a) papers previously published elsewhere may be submitted in their published form provided bibliographic information is clearly indicated; (b) short summaries of works available in other venues or online (on the arXiv or IACR eprint) are acceptable; (c) original submissions may be left anonymous at the discretion of the authors. (Previously published submissions cannot be anonymous.)

There is no restriction on program committee member submissions to either track, though PC-authored papers will be held to a higher standard.

Papers should be submitted through EasyChair:
