L&T 2023 : The 20th International Learning and Technology Conference - “The Edtech and The Rise of Metaverse”
Call For Papers
The Metaverse is the emerging technology that creates the experience of an immersive, three-dimensional environment where users interact with their surroundings and shared space. It’s a convergence of several technologies such as blockchain, augmented reality,
virtual reality, 3D reconstruction, and artificial intelligence. The Metaverse market reached $46 billion in 2020, the market size is predicted to reach as much as $800 billion by 2024. Locally, Saudi Arabia plans to spend billions of dollars on blockchain and Metaverse technologies. Saudi Arabia’s new Metaverse will help design a $500bn city in Real Life (IRL) where NEOM will be shaped by a “digital twin” virtual world.
Many believe the Metaverse to be the next critical paradigm for how we utilize digital technology and networks to connect, cooperate, and enjoy virtual experiences. Teaching in a Metaverse platform means textbooks are replaced by integrated video gaming-style
challenges that require students to apply learned skills to compete. There is an increasing need for new communication and connections modes, such as virtual 3D and the Internet of Everything (IoE), and remote communication and collaboration.
The 20th International Learning and Technology Conference aims to be a meeting point for specialists to explore recent breakthroughs and discoveries to make the Metaverse experience more immersive. This conference will bring together decision-makers, academics, scientists, practitioners, professionals, and top keynote speakers to stimulate discussion on the latest developments in Metaverse and related technologies, such as Artificial Intelligence (AI), Virtual Reality (VR), Augmented Reality (AR), Mixed Reality (MR), Internet of Everything (IoE), Robotics, Blockchain, Cloud Computing, Non-Fungible Token (NFT), etc.
