Conference on Information-Theoretic Cryptography (ITC)
In Cooperation With
July 24-26, 2021
Due to COVID-19, the Steering Committee decided that it is safer to hold ITC 2021 virtually.
The second Information-Theoretic
Cryptography (ITC) conference will take place virtually (see
details below) on July 24-26,
2021. ITC is
a conference dedicated to all information-theoretic aspects of
cryptography, broadly defined. See the charter for more
There will be a live program as well as longer pre-recorded talks for the accepted papers. Details below:
- The live online program will take place via a Zoom webinar and will consist of:
- Accepted paper sessions: Authors of accepted papers give brief (5-8 minute) presentations of their work followed by a moderated discussion with questions from the virtual audience.
- Invited talks: We have 6 invited talks representing some of the greatest hits results in information-theoretic cryptography from the last few years.
- Pre-recorded talks for each accepted paper will be made available online prior to the conference start. The talks will contain a 20-25 minute self-contained overview of the main results, optionally followed by a longer technical deep dive.
- Registration is free but required for virtual attendance and only registered participants will receive a link to the zoom webinar. Thanks to generous sponsorship from NTT Research, registration is entirely free!
We look forward to seeing you online in July!
