IEEE International Conference on Advanced Networks and Telecommunications Systems
14-17 December 2020 // Virtual Conference


IEEE ANTS is a premier IEEE conference on advanced networking and telecommunications topics. IEEEANTS 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 “ICT for connecting Humanity”. In addition to the myriad of topics mentioned in the list below, technical papers are invited which have special focus on enabling technologies fora hyper-connected world. IEEE ANTS 2020 will be held at IIIT-Delhi, New Delhi, one of the eminent Institute of India. 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. Potential research topics include (but not limited to) following thrust areas.
