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:

The workshops are open for proposals and the PhD forum are also open for

*Best Paper Award and Journal Special Issues:*

Three accepted papers will be selected for best paper awards. Selected
papers will be recommended to Digital Communications and Networks (IF:
6.797) for potential fast-track publications.

*Regular Paper Submission Guidelines:*

MetaCom 2023 invites submission of manuscripts with original research
results that have not been previously published or posted on public
websites or that are not currently under review by another conference or
journal. Submitted manuscripts must be prepared according to IEEE Computer
Society Proceedings Format (double column, 10pt font, letter paper) and
submitted in the PDF format. The manuscript submitted for review should be
no longer than 8 pages. After the manuscript is accepted, the camera-ready
paper may have up to 10 pages, subject to an additional fee per extra page.
Reviewing will be *double-blind*. Submissions must not reveal the authors'
names and their affiliations and avoid obvious self-references. Manuscripts
should be submitted to one of the research tracks. Submissions not meeting
these guidelines will be rejected without consideration of their merits.
Accepted and presented papers will be published in the IEEE MetaCom 2023
Conference Proceedings and included in IEEE Xplore.
