See below for an announcement about a new conference, ITC, on
We are happy to announce the birth of a new conference on Information-Theoretic
Cryptography (ITC). Information-theoretic cryptography studies security in
the presence of computationally unbounded adversaries and covers a wide
array of topics at the intersection of cryptography, coding theory,
information-theory and theory of computation. Notable examples include
randomness extraction and privacy amplification, secret sharing, secure
multiparty computation and proof systems, private-information retrieval and
locally decodable codes, authentication codes and non-malleable codes,
differential privacy, quantum information processing, and
information-theoretic foundations of physical-layer security. See
https://itcrypto.github.io for more information.
ITC replaces the International Conference on Information Theoretic Security
(ICITS), which was dedicated to the same topic and ran 2005-2017. ITC can
be seen as a reboot of ICITS with a new name, a new steering committee and
a renewed excitement.
The conference will have two tracks: a conference track and a “greatest
hits” track. The conference track will operate like a traditional
conference with the usual review process and published proceedings. The
“greatest hits” track consists of invited talks (not included in the
proceedings) that highlight the most exciting recent advances in the area.
We solicit nominations for “greatest hits” talks from the community.
The first ITC conference will take place in Boston, MA on June 17-19, 2020
(just before STOC). The submission deadline for ITC 2020 is Dec 16, 2019
and the call for papers (including a nomination procedure for the greatest
hits track) is available here: https://itcrypto.github.io/2020.html
Please submit your best work to ITC 2020! We hope to see many of you there!
