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 stateof-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.

Call for Workshop Proposals

In addition to exciting technical symposia, tutorials, industry panels and exhibitions, IEEE ANTS 2020 will feature a series of half and full-day workshops. We solicit the proposals for half/full day workshops. The aim of the conference workshops is to emphasize emerging topics not specifically covered in the main symposia. Workshops should highlight current topics related to technical and business issues in communications and networking, and should include a mix of regular papers, invited presentations, and panels that encourage the participation of attendees in active discussion.

Proposals focussing the exciting topics in creative formats that generate lively interactions among participants are highly encouraged. Examples include facilitating multi-disciplinary discussions across academicians, practitioners and policy makers leading to high impact and transformative research. Papers will be added to the IEEE ANTS 2020 Conference Proceedings and submitted to IEEE Xplore.
