IEEE ANTS will present Best Paper Awards during the conference. After double-blind review, all accepted and presented papers will appear in IEEE Xplore and indexed in SCOPUS, Google Scholar and other major indexing. There will be a few workshops co-located with the conference. Proposals to organize workshops in- line with the theme and main conference are also encouraged. In addition, those interested in the conference are also encouraged to submit proposals for tutorials and PhD Forum. IEEE ANTS 2019 offers several student travel grants of up to INR  7000/- to students who registered and co-authored an accepted paper in IEEE ANTS 2019 on competition basis.
