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

Women In Engineering (WiE)

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. This year the theme is “Ubiquitous Digital Connectivity and Economic Prosperity for All“. 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.

IEEE Women in Engineering (WIE) is a global network of IEEE members and volunteers dedicated to promoting women engineers and scientists with a goal to facilitate the recruitment and retention of women in technical disciplines globally. Keeping with the IEEE WIE pledge to work towards gender-diversified panels at all IEEE conferences, IEEE ANTS 2021 presents a separate WIE track for paper presentations.

Paper Submission: 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 first author must be female, and the presenter must be female. The Call for Paper for WiE Track is same as main conference theme and the paper should be submitted through WiE Track on EDAS. After double-blind review, all accepted and presented papers will appear in IEEE Xplore and indexed in SCOPUS, Google Scholar, and other major indexing. Extended version of selected accepted paper might be included for publication in selected IEEE journals.

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:
