Tenth IEEE International Conference on Advanced Networks and Telecommunications Systems (ANTS) Sponsored by IEEE Communications Society

06-09 November 2016, Bangalore, India


ANTS is the premier IEEE forum on networking and telecommunications topics in India and the only conference 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, workshops, keynotes, invited talks and industry exhibits where academia is exposed to state-of-practice and results from trials and interoperability experiments. IEEE ANTS 2016 will feature long (6-page) papers in three broad areas. Authors are strongly encouraged to address topics of interest, focusing on (but not limited to) the following thrust areas:

  1. Wireline Networks:
    Cloud and data center networks
    Software-Defined Infrastructure
    (Networks, Storage, and Compute)
    Core network architectures and protocols
    Metro and access networks
    Optical communications and networking
    High-performance router architectures
    Heterogeneous Networks
    Network architectures for the Smart Grid
  2. Wireless Networks:
    Ad hoc mobile networks
    Cellular and broadband wireless networks
    Cognitive radio networking
    Convergence of optical and wireless networks
    Optical wireless (free space optics)
