All questions regarding the joint submission process for the Newsletter and Website should be directed to the Newsletter Editor and Online Editor of the Online Commitee.
You are encouraged to submit most content for publication both in the printed newsletter and on the website--especially announcements, news, and events.
Announcements and news items consist of a brief title, a short description, and a longer block of text that provides additional information. A photo or image along with a caption can also be included. Items that are appropriate as announcements include (but are not limited to) news items, job announcements, awards, calls for papers, and requests for volunteers.
To submit an announcement or news item, please do the following:
Events consist of a brief title, a short description, starting and ending dates (and perhaps) times, and a longer block of text that provides additional information.
To submit an event, please do the following:
The front page of the Society website has a rotating slideshow to highlight new and interesting events, announcements, and content for the Society. To submit a item for a slideshow, a suitably high-resolution graphic image (1600 x 571 pixels) is needed along with some title text and a link or pointer to an announcement or page on the Society site. For example, to highlight a WITHITS event at the Allerton conference, you would post the event, create a graphic, and send the link and graphic to the Online Editor at email@example.com.
Conferences have a prominent role in the life of the Society. To ensure that conference events are properly advertised and archived, please follow these instructions
Upon publication, the conference event will be automatically listed as an "upcoming conference" and an "upcoming event". At the end of the conference, it will be automatically archived as a "past conference".
A detailed tutorial on how to create a conference event is available in the help center http://www.itsoc.org/help-center/tutorial/creating-a-conference-event
Regular Newsletter columns in LaTeX or Word formats cannot currently be submitted to the website, but should be submitted directly to the Newsletter Editor.
The Online Editor(s) and the Newsletter Editor are happy to work with authors to translate content into a suitable form for the website as well.
