IEEE International Conference on Advanced Networks and Telecommunications Systems
16-19 December 2019 // Goa, India

Call for Lightning Talks

Alongside a strong academic program of peer-reviewed presentations, IEEE ANTS 2019 includes an attractive Industry Program including Lightning Talks, which are very concise (10 minute), possibly last-minute talks on new communication topics of high interest to industry and commerce. There will be several presentations each day in Lightning sessions on the latest topics and breakthroughs, some which could not be included in other industry program sessions because they are too new. IEEE-ANTS welcomes presentations from diverse sources including industry, academia, government, and the user community. “Lightning Talk sessions consist of a series (usually at least 5 – 6) of 10 minute talks/presentations each introducing a topic or idea very quickly. A set of Lightning Talks is an excellent way to rapidly and compellingly share the latest information about diverse topics from several presenters, without overwhelming the absorptive capacity of the audience.”

One-hour Lightning Talk sessions will be scheduled on each day of the conference immediately before lunch. Interested speakers must submit proposals to the Lightning Talks Chair, Sriganesh Rao (, no later than Friday, Dec. 13, 2019, with request of a preferred presentation date in the Dec. 16-19 period. Use of 0-3 PowerPoint slides will be required to keep the format as informal and focused as possible and allow time for discussion and Q&A with the audience.


The proposal should include the following information:

● Speaker information (name, affiliation, email address, telephone number)

● Title and a short abstract (not exceeding 50 words)

● List of key messages in the talk


There is no separate registration required and it is included in the general conference registration.
