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.

The conference solicits submissions from all research areas related to
Metaverse computing, networking, as well as their corresponding systems and
applications. Topics of interests are covered by the following tracks:
