How to Submit to Web Site and Mailing List

Jump to other IT Society Websites:
You can advertise your conference, news, job openings and other announcements using the Society's mailing list, web site and newsletter.

Announcements for the Mailing List and Web Site

The Society's News and Events email list is sent to hundreds of society members and friends. To announce your event, first post to this web site.  Web site announcements are sent to the email list subscribers. Your posts 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.

If you do not have an account on the Society's web site, you'll need to create one

There are two types of announcements: news items and events.  Use an event for items with dates, such as conferences.

Spotlights

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 .

Newsletter

Regular newsletter columns in LaTeX or Word formats cannot be submitted to the website, but should be submitted directly to the Newsletter Editor.

The Online Editor and the Newsletter Editor are happy to work with authors to translate content into a suitable form for the website as well.
