Ubiquitous networking for seamless connectivity

Early Research Forum


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 and industry initiatives.

Early Research Forum (ERF)


  • The scope of ERF is to offer a venue to present ongoing research work rather than completed work from early researchers (e.g, Master/Doctoral students, young postdocs)
  • The research statement should be clearly identified with three-page limit including:(i) the contribution expected to be in this year theme: “Ubiquitous networking for seamless connectivity”; (ii) clearly stating the addressed problem; (iii) relevant state-of-the-art; (iv) solution to the problem statement; (v) the results achieved so far; and (vi) the future research work directions
  • Submissions will be peer-reviewed by ANTS technical committee to ensure quality, relevance, and potential benefit from attendance to the forum.
  • In addition, the ERF  participants will get an opportunity to present a poster in a poster session at the main conference to increase the visibility of their ongoing work and obtain the feedback from the experts
  • In addition to the above poster presentation, the participants will get an opportunity to showcase their papers results as a Demo in the Demo zone of the conference, if any.
  • Excellent opportunity for participants to win awards and gain recognition
  • The participants will get an opportunity to obtain the travel grant
