Special Issue Information
Emerging advancements of immersive technologies such as extended reality, an umbrella term putting together augmented/virtual/mixed reality, pave the way to the concept of metaverse. The metaverse has been considered one of the future internet applications, which will have the aim to provide varying immersive experiences. In this context, immersive experience refers to the development of a seamless and wirelessly connected extended reality between real and virtual worlds to the users. In particular, most recently, the metaverse has received much attention due to Facebook's brand being renamed to Meta.
Recent technologies in human–computer interaction, computer vision, blockchain, and high-performance computing infrastructures have provided a rise in expectations around many application scenarios in social networking, gaming, healthcare, military, and manufacturing domains. Existing 5G and future envisioned 6G technologies along with artificial intelligence could support such massive and immersive virtual environments.
This Special Issue focuses on the following topics:
- Emerging metaverse applications and services;
- IoT-enabled extended reality for metaverse;
- Recent computer vision techniques for metaverse;
- Resource allocation techniques for metaverse;
- Optimization problems for wireless extended reality;
- Security, privacy, and trust in the context of the metaverse.
