Subject: ICITS 2012 conference deadline extended to March 22
To: Adam Smith <asmith at cse.psu.edu>

Dear colleagues,

Due to conflicts with other deadlines and conferences, the submission
deadline for the "conference" track of ICITS 2012 -- the International
Conference on Information-Theoretic Security -- has been moved back
ten days to Thursday, March 22, 2012.

The "conference" deadline is now Thursday, March 22 (3pm EDT /  19:00 GMT).
The "workshop" deadline is  Monday, April 9.

[ICITS will have two tracks this year, one which will act as a regular
computer science-style conference (published proceedings, original
work only) and the other which will behave more like a workshop,
without proceedings, where presentations on previously published work
or work in progress are welcome.]

For more information, see http://icits2012.iro.umontreal.ca/

Please distribute this announcement to any groups or mailing lists you
feel it might interest. I apologize if you receive multiple copies of
this announcement.

Best regards,
Adam Smith
Program Chair, ICITS 2012


Call for Papers    ---    ICITS 2012

6th International Conference on Information-Theoretic Security
Montreal, Quebec, Canada
August 15--17, 2012

This is the sixth 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. Papers on all
technical aspects of these topics are solicited for submission.

Note that this year there will be two distinct tracks for submission.

Important Dates:

 Conference Track Submission:  Thursday, March 22, 2012 3pm EDT
 Conference Track Notification:   Friday, May 4, 2012
 Proceedings version:                   Tuesday, May 29, 2012

 Workshop Track Submissions: Monday, April 9, 2012, 3pm EDT
 Workshop Track Notification:  Monday, May 28, 2012

 [Note: ICITS (Aug. 15-17, Montreal) is the week before CRYPTO 2012
 (Aug. 20--23, Santa Barbara).]

Two Tracks: Conference and Workshop

The goal of ICITS is to bring together researchers on all aspects of
information-theoretic security. To this end, ICITS 2012 will consist
of two types of contributed presentations. The conference track will
act as a traditional conference (original papers with published
proceedings). The workshop track will operate more like an informal
workshop, with papers that have appeared elsewhere or that consist of
work in progress.

1) 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
 also be published in the conference proceedings (which will appear
 in Springer's Lecture Notes in Computer Science series). We note
 that simultaneous submission to journals is acceptable, but
 simultaneous submission to other conferences with published
 proceedings is not.

2) 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, 2011. Papers that
 describe work in progress are also welcome. We note that the same
 standards of quality will apply to conference and workshop papers.
