Call for Lightning Talks

15th International Conference on Advanced Networks and Telecommunication Systems 14-17 December 2021, IDRBT Hyderabad


Alongside a strong academic program of peer-reviewed presentations, IEEE ANTS 2021 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 minutes 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.”
