IEEE ANTS 2009
Third International IEEE Symposium on Advanced Networks and
Telecommunication Systems (ANTS)
December, 14-16, 2009, New Delhi, India
Paper Submission Deadline (Extended): August 15, 2009, 11:59PM EDT
The Third International IEEE Symposium on Advanced Networks and
Telecommunication Systems (ANTS) will be held in New Delhi, India, in
December 2009. Prospective authors are invited to submit original
technical papers for presentation at the conference and
publication in the conference proceedings in IEEE Xplore.
Broadband networks are witnessing a convergence in both
technologies and delivered services. Next-generation services require
unified and scalable technologies spread across the network protocol
layers facilitating a converged service model across all partitions of
the network. Advanced integrated systems and network platforms have
benefits in terms of deployment cost as well as the ability to provision
new services. Motivated by the tremendous success of the first two IEEE
ANTS events in Mumbai in 2007 and 2008, which highlighted advances in
systems and networking, the theme of IEEE ANTS 2009 continues to be
communication systems and networking technologies for realizing
converged ubiquitous broadband connectivity.
To achieve this goal, the
symposium will feature a technical program of previously unpublished
papers, tutorials, talks, and panels on relevant topics bringing
together experts from academia, industry, government and the user
community who are involved in the research, design, development,
deployment, regulation and application of communication and networking
technologies. The symposium will cover technologies that facilitate
broadband connectivity and cover advances in the service, networking,
transport and user equipment domains. Making ubiquitous broadband
affordable is driving service providers, network operators, and OEMs
(Original Equipment Manufacturers) towards converged network solutions
and services as a way to reduce CAPEX and OPEX. Further, cost-effective
research and development partnerships with knowledge economies in India,
China, and Eastern Europe are being increasingly leveraged as can be
gauged by the growth of ODMs (Original Design Manufacturers) and
software service providers.
IEEE ANTS 2009 provides a common meeting
ground for the confluence and exchange of ideas with a rich mix of
participation from the academia, global industry and other stakeholders.
The symposium will be held in the capital of India, New Delhi, during
December 14-16, 2009.
Recognizing the growth of IEEE ANTS in its first two years, IEEE ANTS
2009 will feature four areas covering a variety of topics consistent
with the theme of Converged Networks.
The four areas are:
1. Core Telecom Networks including topics such as:
* Optical networks
* ROADMs, OXC architectures
* Carrier Ethernet
* Core network architectures and protocols
* Router and switch architectures: IP, SONET/SDH, MSPP
* Multi-domain and multi-layer transport networks
2. Access Telecom Networks including topics such as:
* FTTX Networks
* First-mile access networks
* Passive Optical Networks (PON)
* Wireless access networks and WiMax
* Access network architectures and protocols
* Other access networks: ADSL, DOCSIS, VDSL, Cable, etc.
3. Network applications including topics such as:
* Data security, Content processing/billing, OSS
* IPTV, Video-on-Demand, Telepresence
* Topics in telecommunications
* Mobile backhaul
* Digital Rights Management
4. Networking Broadly Defined including topics such as:
* Storage networks
* Cloud computing
* Utility computing
* Energy efficient networking
* Personal/wireless networks
Submissions: Authors are encouraged to submit a three-page extended
abstract via EDAS ( (http://edas.info/) http://edas.info). Papers will
be reviewed for technical content and scope by a technical program committee.
All accepted papers would be digitally archived through IEEE Xplore. To
achieve wide participation, no author may submit more than TWO papers to
the conference. If a person is a co-author on more than two papers, only
two of these papers will be selected for review and the other papers
will be rejected without review. Every accepted paper must be presented
at the conference for it to be archived on IEEE Xplore.
The Industry Session will be organized as a set of panels and will
afford a unique opportunity for industry leaders to present their
perspectives and share their views on design, development, deployment
and regulatory aspects as it pertains to functioning in the global
economy. The theme of these panels would be on Converged Services and
Networking. Those interested in proposing/organizing panels should
submit their proposals in the form of a one-page summary to the Industry
Chair before September 1, 2009.
Paper submissions: August 15, 2009 (Extended from July 31, 2009)
Notification of acceptance: October 1, 2009.
Registration for authors: October 31, 2009.
Symposium dates: December 14-16, 2009.
Some highlights about IEEE ANTS 2009 include:
- opportunity to interact with industry stalwarts and leading academics.
- a world-class technical program.
- social program: day-long trip through Delhi.
