Telecommunication Systems (ANTS)
Bengaluru (Bangalore), India
December 16-19, 2012
*Sponsored by the IEEE Communications Society (IEEE ComSoc)*
EDAS link for paper submission:

We are witnessing a paradigm shift in networking where the end user demands and cloud computing based service paradigms are influencing evolving network architectures, system designs and service delivery models. Over-the-Top (OTT) players, consumer electronic vendors, IT providers and 3rd party software developers have entered the service delivery value chain fostering an open environment challenging the hegemony of traditional network operators. IT & Telecom, hitherto distinct domains, are now spoken of as ICT (Information and Communications Technologies) symbolizing the close interworking of these
disciplines in the emerging service delivery architectures. Different vertical industries such as energy utilities, healthcare, automotive, banking & finance, retail, media entertainment are leveraging network technologies in innovative ways to offer branded services directly or in partnership with network providers. Machine-to-Machine (M2M) and Internet of Things (IoT) have opened new vistas for communications and networking technologies.

ANTS is the premier IEEE forum on networking and telecommunications topics in India. 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, and invited talks where academia is exposed to state-of-practice and results from industry trials, and interoperability
experiments. The industry is benefited in turn by exposure to leading-edge research in networking as well the opportunity to communicate to academic researchers which practical problems require further research. Further, an opportunity is provided to discuss governmental policies and make recommendations as appropriate to promote
an innovation economy in India.

Motivated by the tremendous success of the first five IEEE ANTS events in Mumbai in 2007, 2008, 2010, in New Delhi in 2009, and in Bangalore in 2011, the theme of 2012 event is on enabling content enriched personalized communication over "green" networks while delivering exemplary user experience on any connected device.

To address this theme, the conference will feature a rich industry program comprising of keynote talks, panel discussions as well as a high quality technical program of peer-reviewed papers, tutorials, and invited talks on relevant topics bringing together experts from industry, academia and government. IEEE ANTS 2012 will provide an exciting meeting ground for the confluence and exchange of ideas among participants from all over the world. The conference will be held again in Bangalore during December 16-19, 2012.

IEEE ANTS 2012 will feature both long and short papers in three broad areas. These areas are:

1. Wireline Networks (including topics such as):
- Cloud and data center networks
- Core network architectures and protocols
- Metro and access networks
- Optical networks
- Router and switch architectures
- Storage networks

2. Wireless Networks (including topics such as):
- Ad hoc mobile networks
- Cellular and broadband wireless networks
- Cognitive radio networking
- Mobility models and mobile networks
- Optical wireless (free space optics)
- Sensor networks and embedded systems
- Wireless access networks
- Wireless mesh networks

3. Network Applications (including topics such as):
- Cyber-physical systems and networks
- M-Health, E-Health and Smart Healthcare
- Energy-Efficient Green networking and Sustainability
- IPTV, Video-on-Demand, Telepresence, Collaboration tools
- Online social networking
- Peer-to-peer networks
- Smartphone networked apps
- Security, trust and privacy
- Embedded Analytics

Of particular interest are papers which address challenges in the emerging economies in the networking and telecommunication sectors and which address the conference theme of enabling content enriched personalized communication over "green" networks while delivering exemplary user experience on any connected device. Authors are strongly
encouraged to address topics of interest to both industry and academia.

Submission Guidelines:
Authors are encouraged to submit their papers using EDAS (
All papers will be reviewed for technical content and scope by a technical program committee. All accepted and presented papers would be digitally archived through IEEE Xplore.

The page limits are SIX pages for the long paper track and THREE pages for the short paper track. Papers should be in PDF format, two columns, font size 10 or greater and compliant with other IEEE ANTS manuscript guidelines. Submitted papers must be unpublished and not currently under review for any other publication. Authors of accepted papers will need to sign an IEEE copyright release form and present their paper at the conference.
