to ANT 2018

The 9th International Conference on Ambient Systems, Networks and Technologies (ANT-2018) is a leading international conference for researchers and industry practitioners to share their new ideas, original research results and practical development experiences from all Ambient Systems, Networks and Technologies related areas. ANT 2018 will be held in conjunction with the 7th International Conference on Sustainable Energy Information Technology (SEIT 2018).

ANT 2018 will be held in Porto, Portugal. Porto is the second-largest city in Portugal after Lisbon and one of the major urban areas of the Iberian Peninsula. Porto is also called the Invicta because during the 19th century Portuguese civil war, the city withstood a siege of over a year.The urban area of Porto, which extends beyond the administrative limits of the city, has a population of 2.1 million in an area of 389 km2 (150 sq mi), making it the second-largest urban area in Portugal. It is recognized as a gamma- level global city by the Globalization and World Cities (GaWC) Study Group, the only Portuguese city besides Lisbon to be recognised as a global city.

Located along the Douro river estuary in Northern Portugal, Porto is one of the oldest European centres, and its historical core was proclaimed a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1996. The western part of its urban area extends to the coastline of the Atlantic Ocean. Its settlement dates back many centuries, when it was an outpost of the Roman Empire. One of Portugal's internationally famous exports, port wine, is named after Porto, since the metropolitan area, and in particular the cellars of Vila Nova de Gaia, were responsible for the packaging, transport and export of the fortified wine. In 2014 and 2017, Porto was elected The Best European Destination by the Best European Destinations Agency.
