Call For Papers

First IEEE International Conference on Meta Computing (ICMC)
October 12-15, 2023 Qingdao China

Over the past 60 years, computing paradigms have undergone significant developments, evolving from the original Client-Server model to newer ones such as Cloud Computing, IoT (Internet of Things), and Edge Computing. The development history of computing paradigms is also the development history of computing power, which is defined to be the amount of information that can be transmitted, processed, and stored by a system, as novel computing technologies have always been driven by the needs of new applications that demand stronger computing power. Nowadays, emerging applications such as Web 3.0, Metaverse, and Industrial Internet put forward demands on next-generation computing technologies that can consolidate the networking resources to provide the desired qualify of services, overcoming the increasingly serious computing power shortage problem.

Meta Computing was proposed to address the limitations faced by existing computing paradigms: 1) terminal-end IoT resources are not fully exploited; 2) there exist barriers to the integration of network-wide computing power; and 3) there is a lack of strong fault tolerance. It aims to utilize all available computing resources hooked on the Internet, provide efficient, fault-tolerant, and personalized services with strong security and privacy guarantee, and virtualize the whole Internet as a giant computer, that is, ``Network-as-a-Computer, NaaC'', or ``Meta Computer'' for short, for any task or any person at any time on-demand. Meta computing possesses the following three functional characteristics: supporting zero-trust environments, integrating all available cloud-edge-terminal computing resources, and configuring meta computers on-demand. To the emerging applications such as Web 3.0 and Metaverse , meta computing intends to turn the Internet into a distributed giant computing power pool to fulfill the ever-increasing needs on computing power; it also refers to the integrated technologies that can offer trust-worthy, fault-tolerant, and easy-to-use computing techniques.
