ANTS is the premier IEEE forum on networking and telecommunications topics in India and the only conference in India 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-practice and results from trials and interoperability experiments.

A subset of the accepted papers will be considered for special issues of journals including the Springer Photonic Network Communications Journal.

IEEE 2014 Venue will be announced shortly. Proposals to host IEEE ANTS 2015 are invited. Please contact: Dr. Sudhir Dixit ( for details.
