Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue will consist of papers focused on computational modelling of the inflammatory response and its interactions with tissue damage, healing, and regeneration. Inflammation is a prototypical complex system, where the whole is often quite different from the sum of the parts. Properly regulated inflammation is necessary for both healing and regeneration. However, dysregulated inflammation is a feature of most, if not all, diseases affecting both developed and developing nations. Over the past 15 years or so, computational modelling has emerged as a novel approach to address the complexity of inflammation, wound healing, and tissue regeneration. This Special Issue aims to give a current perspective on the field.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Computation is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 350 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
