8th International Conference on Information-theoretic Security (ICITS)
May 2-5, 2015, USI Lugano, Switzerland
This is the eighth in a series of conferences that aims to bring together the leading researchers in the
areas of information theory, quantum information theory, and cryptography. ICITS covers all aspects of
information-theoretic security, from relevant mathematical tools to theoretical modeling to implementation.
Papers on all technical aspects of these topics are solicited for submission.
ICITS is a conference about all aspects of information-theoretic security and brings together the leading researchers in the areas of cryptography, information theory and quantum information. It is the successor conference to the 2005 IEEE Information-Theory Workshop on Theory and Practice in Information-Theoretic Security (ITW 2005) on Awaji Island, Japan.

The Nonlinear Optical Phononics (NOP) group at the University of Sydney currently has a vacancy for a postdoctoral position working in the development of novel chip-based Brillouin sources, including Brillouin frequency combs (BFC).
Applications from highly motivated researchers are welcome for a postdoctoral position in the group of Adolfo del Campo in the Department of Physics, University of Massachusetts Boston.
Candidates must hold a Ph.D.
Quantum technology is a cutting-edge field aimed at harnessing the unique nature of quantum mechanics to perform tasks that are impossible with conventional technologies. The Optics Division at the University of Strathclyde will be a focal point of the EPSRC Quantum Technology Hubs, and has received significant funding from the recent call to expand our multi-disciplinary research in both experimental and theoretical fields. These full-time posts are available from 1st October, initially for two years with the possibility of extension to up to five years.
In the theory group of Prof. Uwe R. Fischer at Seoul National University, there is an opening for a Postdoc position for one year, with a possible extension by another year. Possible research topics are novel quantum phases in optical lattices, dipolar gases with strong correlations, the many-body physics of fragmented condensates, dynamical quantum phase transitions, the Kibble-Zurek mechanism of topological defect creation, and quantum state transfer in hybrid quantum systems.
