1st IEEE International Workshop on the Musical Metaverse (IEEE IWMM)—1 October 2024

IEEE IWMM 2024 is a satellite event of the IEEE 5th International Symposium on the Internet of Sounds (IEEE IS2 2024). The workshop is hosted by the International Audio Laboratories Erlangen and takes place 1 October 2024 in Erlangen, Germany.

The metaverse relates to a vision where each of us interacts through an avatar in a virtual, digital world. Music is one of the possible activities that can be conducted in such a space. The “Musical Metaverse”, the metaverse part dedicated to musical activities, is a concept that is evolving and progressing at a steady pace. The Musical Metaverse is an emerging topic in communications as well as in human-computer interaction. To date, scarce research has been conducted on how to integrate networking systems with Musical XR systems.

The aim of IEEE IWMM 2024 is to bring together academics and industry to investigate and advance the development of systems at the confluence of Musical XR and networking, as well as the understanding of human perception in immersive, networked contexts.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Musical XR systems for networked interactions
  • Multisensory systems for the Musical Metaverse
  • WebXR-based musical systems
  • Networking for the Musical Metaverse
  • Digital twins for musical applications
  • Multiuser interactions in Musical XR
  • Hardware systems for the Musical Metaverse
  • Performance, composition and pedagogy in the Musical Metaverse
  • Virtual/augmented reality musical instruments
  • Design frameworks for the Musical Metaverse
  • Experimental results of prototype/testbed for Musical Metaverse applications
  • Ultra-reliable low-latency communications
  • 5G/6G architectures leveraging slicing and Multi-access Edge Computing
  • Blockchain and NFTs applications for the Musical Metaverse
  • Standardization activities for the Musical Metaverse
  • Security and privacy in the Musical Metaverse
  • Ethical, accessibility and sustainability aspects of the Musical Metaverse

We consider contributions in the form of abstracts (max 500 words), full papers (min 5 pages, max 10 pages), poster papers (4 pages), or a demo proposal (max 2 pages). We encourage the submission of work in progress as well as more mature work.

Accepted papers of at least 4 pages, not including abstracts or demo papers, will be submitted to IEEE Xplore® for publication in IS2 2024 proceedings. See IEEE Technical Program Integrity Initiative FAQs for clarification.
