Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue focuses on intelligent metaverse platform systems, XR cloud computing, and XR content-based research. Artificial intelligence technology and state-of-the-art network technology in the metaverse environment are now essential to provide immersion to users with the required quality of experience (QoE). In this Special Issue, we introduce recent advances in research and innovation based on artificial intelligence metaverse systems, XR cloud computing, 3D graphic technology, and metaverse networking. We aim to publish the latest and most technically sound research articles demonstrating theoretical and practical contributions to high-performance intelligent metaverse platforms, advanced network approaches, and immersive 3D graphic technology.

Topics of interest for this Special Issue include, but are not limited to:

  • VR/AR/MR new media technology and applications;
  • Simulation and tracking technology for VR/AR/MR;
  • Applied computer vision for XR content;
  • Large datasets on intelligent metaverse platforms;
  • Real-time 360-degree VR graphic-rendering technology;
  • Network design for the metaverse;
  • XR content delivery networks;
  • Segement routing for XR;
  • Cloud computing;
  • In-network computing;
  • Deep learning approaches for XR content processing;
  • Applied machine learning approaches to optimize cloud computing and networking;
  • Metaverse platform QoS/QoE analysis and evaluations;
  • Three-dimensional game engines and applications applicable to the metaverse;
  • Digital twin and cyber-physical systems;
  • Computer graphic technology on metaverse platforms;
  • Networking engines for metaverse platforms;
  • Three-dimensional graphic technology for the generation of metaverse avatars;
  • Trust information management for XR environments;
  • The application of 5G/6G network technology to the metaverse platform.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Applied Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2300 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
