IEEE International Conference on Advanced Networks and Telecommunications Systems (ANTS: 12/15-12/18)

IEEE International Conference on Advanced Networks and Telecommunications Systems (ANTS: 12/15-12/18)
We are happy to announce that the 18th IEEE International Conference on Advanced Networks and Telecommunication Systems (IEEE ANTS 2024) will be held at the Indian Institute of Technology Guwahati (IIT Guwahati), Assam, India, 12/15-12/18 2024.

IEEE ANTS is a premier IEEE conference on advanced networking and telecommunications topics. IEEE ANTS is financially and technically supported by the IEEE Communications Society. The distinguishing characteristic of IEEE ANTS is the promotion of an intense dialogue between academics 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 results from trials and interoperability experiments.

 Authors can submit short (max 4 pages) and regular (max 6 pages) papers that contain original material which is not currently communicated/submitted/under-review in other conferences or journals and has not been previously published.

After review, all accepted and presented papers will appear in IEEE Xplore. One conference registration by the author covers three papers which are authored or co-authored by the author. The conference proceedings are indexed in SCOPUS and other major indexing platforms. IEEE ANTS 2024 will feature workshops, tutorials, and panel discussions, collocated with the main conference. Proposals to organize workshops, tutorials, and panel discussions in line with the theme of the main conference are also encouraged. The early research forum (ERF) will provide an opportunity for students and early career professionals to present and discuss their work in progress with experts and peers from around the world. Complimentary access to ANTS Industry Booths will be provided to all the participating individuals and sponsors. IEEE ANTS will present BEST PAPER AWARDS for each track during the conference. Several travel grants are available for conference attendees and authors. The authors of the selected (accepted) papers will be invited to submit the extended versions of the papers to the special issues of Springer Nature's journals, namely, Wireless Personal Communications and Photonic Network Communications.


ANTS Industry Booths:

An opportunity for both employers and job seekers that facilitates face-to-face interaction, research discussion, on-site interviews, and much more while saving time and cost. The employers will have access to a number of resumes and the candidates will have an opportunity to explore various available positions from different organizations.


To sustain the quality of IEEE ANTS that the ANTS community and the IEEE communication society have been able to establish thus far, we greatly depend on financial support from reputed organizations. IEEE ANTS provide sponsors an opportunity to showcase their organization’s capabilities to researchers and engineers from all over the world. In the past, IEEE ANTS has been co-sponsored by different organizations such as Cisco, Qualcomm, Samsung, Infinera, Microsoft, Keysight, Mathworks, DRDO, CSIR, SERB, UKIERI, C-DOT, Tejas Networks, Wipro, Ennetix, IEEE Future Networks, and others. Sponsorship proposals are invited for IEEE ANTS 2024.

Travel Grants:

IEEE ANTS 2024 offers a number of travel grants to authors who registered and authored/co-authored an accepted paper in IEEE ANTS 2024, and who are IEEE ComSoc members on competition basis. The travel grants encourage participation by researchers who would normally find it difficult to attend. Women and students are especially encouraged to apply. These travel supports will enable sharing scientific information and stimulating research interests for authors in the field of communications and networking.

Early Research Forum (ERF):

The scope of this forum is to provide a two-way exchange of knowledge where early career researchers (B.Tech, M.Tech or Ph.D.) can explain their research work (including work-in-progress) to a broader audience and gain valuable feedback from a panel of selected industry-academia experts. It is an excellent opportunity for industry and leading research labs to identify promising early career researchers and establish collaboration to develop future technology of common interest.


Exhibit and Demo:

IEEE ANTS 2024 invites proposals for the demos and exhibits. The track aims to provide a platform for an interactive form of presentation for innovative hardware/software prototypes. The researchers from industry/start-ups are invited to use this opportunity to show-case their new market-ready products/equipment. Researchers from academia whose research deals with interactive working systems are strongly encouraged to use this opportunity.
