Call for Workshop Papers (DIM 2024)

The 2nd International Workshop on Distributed Intelligence for Metaverse (DIM 2024)

August 12-14, 2024 · Hong Kong SAR, China


Metaverse, an emerging concept, has attracted lots of attention worldwide recently. Exploiting core technologies such as 5G/6G communications, virtualization, AI, and blockchain, metaverse is expected to realize an immersive, embodied, and interoperable virtual world. As a result, the metaverse is believed to have the potential to play a transformative role in gaming, social networking, education, healthcare and more scenarios. However, a fundamental challenge, i.e., distributed intelligence for metaverse, has not been well studied. In the vision of metaverse, a huge number of AI-empowered edge devices, cloud servers and network equipment collaborate in creating and maintaining a shared virtual world. Such a collaboration is critical for robustness, efficiency and security of metaverse. Meanwhile, the interaction between smart devices and servers depends on the efficiency of data perception, transmission and processing in human motion, environment and virtual services. Collecting and tracking data from various terminal devices and conducting online intelligent computation and analysis of a large amount of data is necessary. However, existing distributed computing and networking techniques cannot well deal with these emerging challenges because they still heavily rely on human experiences and involvement. Therefore, research developments and breakthroughs in distributed intelligence will become the cornerstone of metaverse. We invite submissions on the research topic of Distributed Intelligence for Metaverse, covering both theoretical and systems studies.
