IEEE International Conference on Advanced Networks and Telecommunications Systems
13-16 December 2021 // Hyderabad, India


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 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 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”. IEEE ANTS 2021 will be held at IDRBT, Hyderabad, India. The theme of the conference will foster an environment for deliberating on different research aspects on the said topic.


Proposals are solicited from domain experts for Tutorials to be held in conjunction with the main technical program of the 15th IEEE International Conference on Advanced Networks and Telecommunications (IEEE ANTS 2021). The IEEE ANTS 2021 Tutorial Program is intended to disseminate information to conference attendees on current topics directly relevant to the conference theme, networking and communication technologies for realizing the theme “Ubiquitous Digital Connectivity and Economic Prosperity for All“ (a list of areas/topics of interest can be found in the Call for Papers). Proposals must provide an in-depth survey of a chosen topic with the option of describing a piece of work in detail and a meaningful summary of open issues in the topic. Proposed tutorials should be comprehensive, informative, and appealing to ANTS 2021 attendees. The selected tutorials will be held on the first day of conference (Dec 13). All tutorials will be featured prominently in the conference program. Each tutorial will be for 3 hours with a half hour break. Tutorial instructors must make a commitment to prepare the tutorial materials (e.g., slides) reflecting high quality standards.
