While social network services and applications are unprecedentedly
pervasive today (e.g., messaging, gaming, advertising, recommendation,
and commerce), multiple recent technology advances have already
started to shape the social networks, including “metaverse”. On one
hand, Augmented/Virtual Reality (AR/VR), Internet of Things (IoT), and
Multi-access Edge Computing (MEC) are bringing new mobile computing
and communication paradigms for provisioning and accessing social
networks, digital spaces of social media, online gaming, etc. On the
other hand, Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML),
characterized by recent breakthroughs of deep learning and big data,
are finding successful applications to social networks, including
detecting/preventing spam, fraud, and misinformation and enhancing
service experience via intelligent user interactions (e.g.,
recognition) with texts, images, and voices. Yet, how to exploit and
synergize all such state-of-the-art technologies to revolutionize
social networks is still in its infancy and requires comprehensive
investigation and research.

The goal of the 1st International Workshop on Social and Metaverse
Computing and Networking (SocialMeta'22) is to bring together
scientists, researchers, engineers, and practitioners to identify new
problems and discuss the latest research ideas and results, especially
those related to novel and emerging technologies, regarding social
networks and the metaverse. SocialMeta focuses on all aspects of
social networks and the metaverse, including architecture, design,
implementation, measurement, modeling, algorithm, analysis, and
theory. The topics include but are not limited to the following:

- Mobile and location-based online social networks and the AR/VR-based
- Reputation, incentives, and economics in social networks
and the metaverse
- Security and privacy in social networks and the
- AR/VR, IoT, wearables, and crowdsourcing for social networks and the metaverse
- Cloud, edge, SDN, and NFV for social networks and the metaverse
- Non-terrestrial networks, UAV, and 5G/6G for social networks and the metaverse
- AI/ML, data science, and blockchains for social networks and the
- Measurement of social network and metaverse systems and
- Modeling, algorithms, and theories for social networks and the metaverse

Authors are encouraged to submit papers describing original and
unpublished research, not currently under review in other venues,
addressing state-of-the-art research and development in all aspects of
mobile computing, social networks, or the intersection of both. In
particular, innovative, early-stage ideas and preliminary results are
welcome. The length of the paper must be no more than 6 pages in the
IEEE double-column format, including references. The first page must
contain an abstract, the name(s) and affiliation(s) of the author(s).
Each submission will receive at least three independent, blind peer
reviews from the program committee. At least one of the authors of
every accepted paper must register and present the paper at the
workshop. The program committee will select one paper for the Best
Paper Award. Outstanding papers will be recommended to IEEE/TUP
Journal of Social Computing.
