A Special Message

The COVID-19 global pandemic is a unique challenge that has impacted many members of the IEEE family and some of you are directly or indirectly engaged in the fight against it. We would like to express our concern and support for all members of the IEEE community, our staff, our families and others affected by this health crisis. These are difficult times, but we will get through them by working together. Thank you for your support of our shared mission to advance technology for humanity.

In case of travel restrictions due to Covid-19 that prohibit physical appearance, IEEE ANTS will allow authors of accepted papers to present and participate remotely if they wish to do so.


IEEE ANTS is a premier IEEE conference on advanced networking and telecommunications topics. IEEE ANTS is financially and technically supported by IEEE Communications Society. The distinguishing characteristic of IEEE ANTS is the promotion of an intense dialogue between academic 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 as well as an opportunity to communicate and collaborate with academic researchers regarding practical problems. This year the theme is “Ubiquitous Digital Connectivity and Economic Prosperity for All“. In addition to the myriad of topics mentioned in the list below, technical papers are invited which have special focus on enabling technologies for a ubiquitous digital connectivity.

IEEE ANTS 2021 will be held at Institute for Development and Research in Banking Technology (IDRBT) Hyderabad which was established by the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) in 1996. 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 (max 6 pages) papers that contain original material which is not currently communicated in other conference or journal and has not been previously published.

The authors of the selected (accepted) papers will be invited to submit the extended versions of their papers to Journal of Banking and Financial Technology (co published by Springer and Institute for Development and Research in Banking Technology). The details about the journal can be found in:

Best / Selected papers presented at IEEE ANTS 2021 will be considered in Springer’s  Photonic Network Communications (PNET – Special Issue.
