Technical Papers

Prospective authors are invited to submit original technical papers for publication in the IEEE ANTS 2013 Conference Proceedings and for presentation at the Conference.
Authors must submit their manuscripts using EDAS ( on or before July 15, 2013. All manuscripts will be blind-reviewed for technical content and scope by a technical program committee. If you are new to EDAS, please visit this page
During the initial manuscript submission process via EDAS, it is the authors' responsibility to ensure that the author list and the paper title of the submitted file is an exact match to the author list and paper title on the EDAS registration page. In particular, the EDAS registration page must include all co-authors, not just the submitting author. Failure to comply with this rule might result in your paper being withdrawn from the review process. Please be aware that the author list of an accepted paper cannot be changed in the final manuscript.

All submissions should be written in English with a maximum page length of SIX (6) printed pages for the long paper track and THREE (3) pages for the short paper track. Papers should be in PDF format, two columns, (minimum 10-point font) or greater and compliant with other IEEE ANTS manuscript guidelines.

Standard IEEE conference templates for LaTeX and Microsoft Word formats can be used to write technical papers and are found at:
Please run the paper formatting check on EDAS yourself by clicking on the  icon under the Check Format column in the Files row in the basic paper view page.

Papers exceeding 6 pages will not be accepted at EDAS, nor will they be reviewed at all. 
All accepted and presented papers would be included in IEEE ANTS 2013 Conference Proceedings and digitally archived through IEEE Xplore.

Important IEEE Policy Announcement:

The IEEE reserves the right to exclude a paper from distribution after the conference (including its removal from IEEE Xplore) if the paper is not presented at the conference.
Papers are reviewed on the basis that they do not contain plagiarized material and have not been submitted to any other conference at the same time (double submission). These matters are taken very seriously and the IEEE Communications society will take action against any author who engages in either practice. Follow these links to learn more: If you have any questions regarding the submission of manuscripts, please contact the Technical Program Co-Chairs or the Publications Chair.
