The synchronized virtual replication of physical objects from the real world within the “Metaverse” is happening through innovative technologies such as VR/XR and Digital Twins. The new frontier of the Metaverse is to reproduce real scenes with the digital reconstruction of objects, reflecting at the same time their behavioral and physical properties, integrated with new features.

The design and integration of Digital Twins into the Metaverse represent a new open field of research that aims at the evolution of a new way of conceiving the world. The creation of Smart Scenes integrated with the Digital Twin models apply to many fields, such as training, Industry 4.0, or Health, to name a few. A main problem faced in the creation and use of these applications involves the need for a high-level quantity of physical resources for the processing of the Digital Twin with the associated textures and metadata.

The new challenge is to create Optimized Smart Scenes, safely integrated into the Metaverse based on the Edge/Fog/Cloud Computing and Distributed Network Systems paradigms. Users must have a digital identity before accessing the Smart Scenes and must follow the ethical rules for establishing social relationships within the Metaverse.

Aim of the workshop

The workshop aims to disseminate publishable and applicable results, promoting discussions and collaborations, and to identify future research directions for Digital Twins and Metaverse.

Topics include (but are not limited to) the following:

  • Digital-Twins Life Cycle;
  • Optimized Framework Definition for Digital Twins;
  • Cooperation and Interaction between Digital Twins and Humans in Metaverse;
  • Practical validation and case studies of Digital Twins in Metaverse;
  • Privacy and Security Issues and Opportunities;
  • Digital Twin as a Service;
  • Optimized Framework Definition for Digital Twins;
  • Edge/Fog/Cloud Computing Solutions for Optimized Smart Scene with DT in Metaverse;
  • Real-World Deployments and Experimentations;
  • Distributed Network Solution for Optimized Smart
