Call For Papers

11th IEEE International Conference on
Advanced Networks and Telecommunication Systems [ANTS]
17-20 December 2017, Bhubaneswar, India

EDAS Conference Management:
ANTS is a premier IEEE forum on networking and telecommunications topics.It is the only conference in India, which is financially sponsored 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 in networking as well as the opportunity to communicate with academic researchers regarding practical problems that require further research.

This year the theme is "Communications for Smart City". In addition to the myriad of topics mentioned in the list below, special focus will be on accepting papers, which haves special focus on enabling technologies for communications in Smart Cities. As Bhubaneswar is gearing up to build smart city, 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 (6 pages) papers focusing on (but not limited to) the following thrust areas.
