Women in Theory 2018

June 19-22, 2018
Harvard University, Cambridge, MA
https://womenintheory.wordpress.com/

Registration deadline: January 16, 2018

This is a workshop for female graduate students and exceptional undergraduates (fourth year) in theoretical computer science. The workshop will have first-rate technical content and will be a great opportunity for students to meet their peers from around the world.
We will supply dorm rooms, breakfast and lunch, and will probably also be able to cover at least part if not all of the travel expenses.
More detailed information including how to apply can be found on the workshop website.

Quantum Computer Science School 2018

January 22-25, 2018
University of Technology Sydney, city campus
http://conference.iiis.tsinghua.edu.cn/QCSS2018/

Registration deadline: January 15, 2018

The Quantum Computer Science School is a week-long series of lectures and academic activities for senior undergraduates and graduates, held at the University of Technology Sydney, Australia, between 22 to 25 January 2018. The lectures of this school will focus on topics from quantum information, quantum computation, and computer science. This gives a good opportunity for students to catch up with the trend of quantum software and information. This event also features a public lecture by Prof Andrew Yao from Tsinghua University. Senior undergraduate and graduates in science and engineering are very welcome to participate in this school. More detailed information, including how to register, can be found on the event website.

The New York Area Theory Day is a semiannual event, aimed to bring together people in the New York Metropolitan area who are interested in theoretical computer science. This time it will take place at New York University and feature three long and five short talks on a broad variety of topics.

2018 IEEE International Symposium on Information Theory

June 17-22, 2018
Vail, Colorado
https://www.isit2018.org/

Submission deadline: January 9, 2018

The 2018 IEEE International Symposium on Information Theory will be held from June 17 to 22, 2018 in Vail, Colorado in the USA. The conference welcomes submissions that are broadly under the purview of information theory or which use information-theoretic ideas/measures in its arguments.

The technical program committee this year has a large number of members from the theory CS community and welcomes submissions in theoretical computer science and adjacent areas that fall under the broad scope of ISIT.

There is a 5 page limit on submissions, which means they are either short results, or they are outlines of bigger results which would then have a full version posted somewhere. In particular, small cute results are appreciated. So ISIT could be a good forum for such results in TCS, while also advertising the problems, concepts, and techniques to the broader information theory community.

The call for papers and other details are available at https://www.isit2018.org/
The submission deadline for registering papers is Jan 9, 2018 and submitting the papers is Jan 12.

The conference also seeks half-day tutorial proposals, which should provide clear and focused teaching material covering new and emerging topics within the scope of the conference. Proposals for tutorials are due Dec 15. https://www.isit2018.org/authors/call-for-tutorials/
