IEEE International Conference on Metaverse Computing, Networking and Applications (MetaCom 2023)

June 26-28, 2023 · Kyoto, Japan.

Call for Papers

IEEE MetaCom 2023 provides a forum for academic researchers and industry practitioners to present research progresses, exchange new ideas, and identify future directions in the field of Computing, Networking, and Applications for Metaverse.

Scope and Objectives

Metaverse is one of the key enablers for the future society, which is envisioned to bring a new revolution to digital world. For Metaverse, physical world will be seamlessly integrated with cyber world through digitizing physical objects to create digital twins, which poses numerous challenges on human-machine interfaces, ultra-low latency, extremely high resource demands, low traffic, reliability and trustworthiness. To realize this vision, it becomes indispensable for the convergence of computing, networking and applications for Metaverse in a wide range of domains including industry, finance, medical care, smart cities, entertainment, education, and agriculture.
