The 44-year-old on Sunday joined Juve players and supporters in celebrating both a third straight Scudetto triumph and the achievement of landing a top-flight record points haul of 102.
Conte, who replaced Luigi Delneri in May 2011, had recently hinted he was looking for a new coaching challenge, but a message released by Juve on Monday night told a different story.
A Tweet from Juve's official account read: "Season 2014/15: manager Antonio Conte."
The former Bianconeri midfielder watched his side beat Cagliari 3-0 at the Juventus Stadium at the weekend as Juve became the first Italian club to win all their home matches - 19 - in a given season.
The title was wrapped up two weeks ago, with second-placed Roma ending the campaign a distant 17 points behind their rivals.
Conte had been mentioned as a possible replacement for David Moyes at Manchester United before outgoing Holland boss Louis van Gaal was installed as the new man at Old Trafford on Monday.
His confirmation in the Turin dugout also distances him from the Italy job, which could become vacant should national coach Cesare Prandelli decide to move on after the World Cup.
Reports in Italy suggested the Juve board were considering making an approach to Sampdoria for their Serbian coach Sinisa Mihajlovic, had Conte left Turin.
