WS-09: Emerging Technologies for the Metaverse with 6G Massive/Immersive Communications

WELCOME TO IEEE WCNC 2024 WORKSHOP ON Emerging Technologies for the Metaverse with 6G Massive/Immersive Communications

 

SIGNIFICANCE

Metaverse is a vision enabling to integrate the real and virtualized worlds, empowered by various techniques such as artificial intelligence (AI) and extended reality (XR). Given that the core of the Metaverse lies in the interconnection, the advanced sixth-generation (6G) wireless network is considered as an indispensable part of the Metaverse. Based on the three pillar scenarios in the previous fifth-generation (5G) networks, namely, the enhanced mobile broadband (eMBB), massive machine-type communications (mMTC) as well as ultra-reliable and low latency communications (URLLC), the International Telecommunication Union Radiocommunication Sector (ITU-R) has recently endorsed their advanced versions in 6G research. Specifically, the eMBB and the mMTC are enhanced to massive communicationand immersive communication, respectively, followed by more stringent requirements. On the one hand, immersive communication, requiring much larger transmission bandwidth than eMBB in 5G, covers a wide range of novel use cases, including the XR and holographic communications, which serve as the building block of the Metaverse. On the other hand, massive communication, the advanced version of mMTC, intends to support connectivity of a huge number of devices, possibly in a relatively small area, and thus to support the realization of the Metaverse. Emerging technologies, such as millimeter-wave/terahertz (mmWave/THz) communications, massive multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO), integrated sensing and communications (ISAC), artificial intelligence (AI), etc., are urgently required to support massive communication and immersive communication and thus to realize the paradigm shifts towards the Metaverse aided by future 6G networks.

 

 

This workshop serves as a platform to explore innovative solutions that will define the emerging architecture, protocols, and strategies for the 6G techniques and the Metaverse, with an emphasis on massive communication and immersive communication. We encourage worldwide researchers to submit their technical papers via Here.
