IT Society members may submit news and announcements to be distributed via the Society's mailing list, website and social media accounts. Items of interest include: conferences, job openings, awards, calls for papers, and requests for volunteers. All items should be of interest to the information theory community. One-off book announcements and promotion of for-profit journals will not be approved.
To announce your news or event, first submit to this web site. Approved items appear on the web site, on the Society's social media accounts and are sent to the mailing list.
How to Submit to the Mailing List and Social Media
To submit an announcement:
- Log in to your account.
- Select the type of item to submit:
- If you are ready to submit, select Submit for Review and save. Otherwise, select Draft. You should receive a confirmation email.
Include an image and caption to increase the impact of your announcements if you have them. If you are posting a job opening, use your institution's logo.
Your posting will be reviewed by the Online Editor. After approval, your item will immediately appear under News, Upcoming Events or Jobs Board. The item should appear on the Society's social media accounts soon after that. The items are sent to the mailing list usually within 24 hours. Announcements are not sent to you automatically — you must subscribe to the mailing list to receive the announcement yourself.
Landing Page Slideshow
The front page of our website has a rotating slideshow to highlight new and interesting events, announcements, and content for the Society. To submit an item for a slideshow, a 1028 x 1440 pixel graphic image 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 protected].
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.
