Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

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.

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. Sensors 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 2400 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.

Holographic-type communication (HTC) permits new levels of engagement between remote users. It is anticipated that it will give a very immersive experience while enhancing the sense of spatial co-presence. In addition to the newly revealed advantages, however, stringent system requirements are imposed, such as multi-sensory and multi-dimensional data capture and reproduction, ultra-lightweight processing, ultra-low-latency transmission, realistic avatar embodiment conveying gestures and facial expressions, support for an arbitrary number of participants, etc. In this paper, we review the current limitations to the HTC system implementation and systemize the main challenges into a few major groups. Furthermore, we propose a conceptual framework for the realization of an HTC system that will guarantee the desired low-latency transmission, lightweight processing, and ease of scalability, all accompanied with a higher level of realism in human body appearance and dynamics.
