Metaverse 2022 : 2022 International Conference on Metaverse-Special Track
Call For Papers
International Conference on Metaverse (METAVERSE 2022) Special Track Call for Papers
The Services Sector has account for 79.5% of the GDP of United States in 2016. For the world's most services-oriented economy, its services sectors account for more than 90% of GDP. Currently, most of the services are traditional services (e.g. restaurant, travel, transportation, etc.) and digital services (e.g. Internet services, mobile services, digital transformation enabled services, etc.). With the emergence of Metaverse, the current services will be gradually transformed into immersive services that construct digital worlds and connect with physical worlds. The immersive services are the core characteristics of metaverse.
To rapidly respond to the changing economy, the 2022 World Congress on Services (SERVICES 2022) has been naturally extended to become the International Conference on Metaverse (METAVERSE 2022) to cover immersive services for all vertical industries and area solutions. puts its focus on the industry-specific services for digital transformation.
