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.


Proposals are solicited from domain experts for Tutorials to be held in conjunction with the main technical program of the 14th IEEE International Conference on Advanced Networks and Telecommunications (IEEE ANTS 2020). The IEEE ANTS 2020 Tutorial Program is intended to disseminate information to conference attendees on current topics directly relevant to the conference theme, networking and communication technologies for realizing the theme “bridge to connect everything” (a list of areas/topics of interest can be found in the Call for Papers). Proposals must provide an in-depth survey of a chosen topic with the option of describing a piece of work in detail and a meaningful summary of open issues in the topic. Proposed tutorials should be comprehensive, informative, and appealing to ANTS 2020 attendees. The selected tutorials will be held on the first day of conference (Dec 14). All tutorials will be featured prominently in the conference program. Each tutorial will be for 3 hours with half hour break. Tutorial instructors must make a commitment to prepare the tutorial materials (e.g., slides) reflecting high quality standards.
