(Select Track Special Session 5: Metaverse and Digital Twins)

Submission deadline: April 1, 2022
(Final Call!)

Both Metaverse and Digital Twins will use Virtual Reality (VR) technology. From a technical perspective, the Metaverse is still in its infancy and relies on the popularization of 5G or even 6G, while Digital Twins are already very mature. Through data connectivity and loop feedback, it can fully reproduce the real world. Under the highly developed form of the Metaverse, the digital simulation needs to support human beings to have an augmented reality experience that "mixes the fake with the real". "Perception" is transformed into an interactive interface, forming "perception is interaction". Digital Twins serve as the technical paradigm of reality simulation and the foundation of the mixed VR framework in the process of Metaverse construction.

The special conference of Metaverse and Digital Twins aims to bring together multidisciplinary research related to convergent applications of the Metaverse and Digital Twins. It includes realization mechanism, modeling method, application and popularization. Accepted papers will appear in the conference proceedings. The list of topics of interest includes, but is not limited to:
