ITCS 20 call for papers (guest post by Thomas Vidick)

We invite you to submit your papers to the 11th Innovations in
Theoretical Computer Science (ITCS). The conference will be held at
the University of Washington in Seattle, Washington from January 12-14,

ITCS seeks to promote research that carries a strong conceptual message
(e.g., introducing a new concept, model or understanding, opening a new
line of inquiry within traditional or interdisciplinary areas,
introducing new mathematical techniques and methodologies, or new
applications of known techniques). ITCS welcomes both conceptual and
technical contributions whose contents will advance and inspire the
greater theory community.

Submission deadline: September 9, 2019 (05:59pm PDT)
Notification to authors: October 31, 2019
Conference dates: January 12-14, 2020

  1. It will be helpful to know whether this year, as well as some previous years, PC members are allowed to submit their own papers. Since submissions are not fully double blind this may influence the decision of some whether to submit or not.

    1. As Clement replied already, the answer is yes, PC members are allowed to submit their papers. The only exclusions we made are that (1) the chair is not allowed to submit, and (2) submissions from student PC members will not be considered for the best student paper award.
