First IEEE International Conference on Meta Computing (ICMC)
June 20-23, 2024 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 newer computing technologies have always been driven by the needs of novel 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 quality 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, smart, 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 four functional characteristics: supporting zero-trust environments and fault-tolerance computing, integrating all available cloud-edge-terminal computing resources, constructing self-evolving and self-driving cyber-physical fusion, and configuring meta computers on-demand. To the emerging applications such as Web 3.0, Metaverse, and Industrial Internet, meta computing intends to turn the Internet into a distributed giant computing power pool to elastically fulfill the ever-increasing needs on computing power; it also refers to the integrated technologies that can offer trust-worthy, fault-tolerant, intelligent, and easy-to-use computing techniques that can support trusted data flow and sharing as well as smart cyber-physical fusion.
