Call for Papers

As the coronavirus pandemic deepens, there is an urgent need to develop advanced epidemic models that can further improve the efficiency of monitoring, tracking, prevention, control, and treatment. While traditional mathematical modelling methods are considered strong tools to predict the course of COVID-19, healthcare responses are hindered by the lack of standardization, which has prevented universal and coordinated strategies to contain and mitigate the spread of virus. Nonetheless, there are still many challenges, which require researchers in different interdisciplinary areas such as computer science, bioinformatics, epidemiology, and molecular modeling, to work towards cognizing the problem in depth. Artificial intelligence-based models are expected to play a major role in responding to the current and future generations of viruses, which are becoming more complex and much smarter. With the aid of artificial intelligence, there are renewed efforts specifically focusing on machine learning techniques to enhance the computational and data integration capabilities by exploiting many diverse sources of information.

Therefore, the main objective of this special issue is to report on the most recent progress and state-of-the-art investigations on AI-Assisted modeling, including designing, testing, and evaluating, as well as any new standardization initiatives. We specifically seek outstanding work of AI and mathematical modelling that can accurately project the spread of the epidemic, including but not limited to the following topics:

Special Issue Call for Papers: “Section II: Molecular Communications for Diagnostics and Therapeutic Development of Infectious Diseases”

Infectious diseases have affected humans for centuries and continue to pose as one major challenge for healthcare going forward. The recent viral COVID-19 infectious disease has transformed our lives dramatically. Besides a large number of deaths, the virus can also affect the health of the general population. Recent historical events have proven that various types of coronaviruses can have a tremendous impact, and examples of these include the Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) and the Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS), which also showed a high mortality rate. Besides coronaviruses, there are numerous types of infectious diseases that continue to affect people. A number of diseases that have been around for centuries do not currently have cures, one notable example being HIV. The consequence of the spreading of these infectious diseases, which sometimes can evolve into pandemics, can and will affect the global economy. Besides traditional fields such as immunology and virology, novel multi-disciplinary approaches will be required to tackle infectious diseases with much needed diverse and innovative points of view.

This special issue, is a follow on from Section I special issue, and will also focus on developing molecular communication abstractions, models, simulation, and experiments for diagnosing and treating infectious diseases. This may include characterizing the infection process and the propagation behavior of the virus, all the way to new mechanisms for developing therapeutic treatments using communication and information theory as tools. Prospective authors are cordially invited to submit their original manuscript on topics including but not limited to:
