IEEE International Conference on Advanced Networks and Telecommunications Systems
16-19 December 2018 – Radisson Blu, Indore, India


IEEE ANTS is a premier IEEE forum on advanced networking and telecommunications topics. IEEE ANTS is financially and technically supported by IEEE Communications Society. The distinguishing characteristic of IEEE ANTS is the promotion of an intense dialogue between academia and industry to bridge the gap between academic research, industry initiatives, and governmental policies. This is fostered through panel discussions, keynotes, invited talks, and industry exhibits, where academia is exposed to state-of-the-practice and results from trials and interoperability experiments. The industry, in turn, benefits from exposure to leading-edge research in networking as well as the opportunity to communicate with academic researchers regarding practical problems that require further research.

This year the theme is “Towards a Hyper-Connected World: Emerging Trends in ICT”. In addition to the myriad of topics to be covered, special focus will be on accepting papers, which haves special focus on enabling technologies for communications in Smart Cities. As Indore is gearing up to build smart city, has been awarded as the cleanest city in India in 2017, the theme of the conference will foster an environment for deliberating on different research aspects on the said topic.

Authors can submit short (4 pages) and regular (6 pages) papers focusing on (but not limited to) the thrust areas.

IEEE ANTS will present Best Paper Awards during the conference. After double blind review, all accepted and presented papers, will appear in IEEE Xplore and indexed in SCOPUS, Google Scholar and other major indexing. There will be a few workshops co-located with the conference. Proposals to organize workshops in-line with the theme and main conference are also encouraged. In addition, those interested in the conference are also encouraged to submit proposals for tutorials and PhD Forum.

Extended version of selected accepted paper might be included for publication in IEEE Consumer Electronics Magazine
