Call For Papers

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 as well as an opportunity to communicate and collaborate with academic researchers regarding practical problems.

This year the theme is “Towards a Hyper-Connected World: Emerging Trends in ICT”. In addition to the myriad of topics mentioned in the list below, technical papers are invited which have a special focus on enabling technologies for a hyper-connected world. IEEE ANTS 2018 will be held in Indore, which is gearing up to build smart city and 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 (max 6 pages) papers that contain original material which is not currently communicated in other conference or journal, and has not been previously published.
