ITCS’20 Call for Papers

ITCS is one of my favorite (if not my favorite) conferences, with not only great and insightful papers but also a friendly atmosphere. This year should be no exception!

tl;dr: the ITCS’20 CFP has been posted. Read it, and submit your work there!


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, 2020.

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.

Important dates

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

    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.
