Conference on Information-Theoretic Cryptography (ITC)

ITC 2021: Call For Papers

Areas of interest include, but are not restricted to:

  • Randomness extraction and privacy amplification
  • Secret sharing
  • Secure multi-party computation
  • Information-theoretic proof systems
  • Differential privacy
  • Quantum cryptography with unconditional security
  • Oblivious data structures
  • Idealized models (e.g., random oracle and generic group models)
  • Bounded-storage cryptography
  • Private information retrieval and locally-decodable codes
  • Authentication codes and non-malleable codes
  • Adversarial and noisy channels
  • Information-theoretic reductions
  • Information-theoretic foundations of physical-layer security
Papers on all technical aspects of these and related topics are solicited for submission. Papers will be peer reviewed, and accepted papers will be published in conference proceedings and presented at the conference. The proceedings will be published by LIPIcs – Leibniz International Proceedings in Informatics under an open access license.

Continuing the successful format from ITC 2020, the conference will feature both a publication track and a spotlight track. The publication track consists of papers selected among the conference submissions by the program committee for publication in the proceedings and presentation at the conference. The spotlight track consists of invited talks (not published in the proceedings) that highlight the most exciting recent advances in information-theoretic cryptography. Such talks can either survey an ITC-related topic that has seen exciting developments in the last couple of years or can be devoted to a significant ITC-related result that appeared in a recent paper. The selection of speakers will be conducted by the program committee and is by invitation only. However, we solicit nominations from the community. If you would like to nominate a recent result for the greatest hits track, please send a nomination email to the PC chair at Self-nominations are discouraged.
