Special Issue "Data-Driven Modelling of Infectious Diseases"
A special issue of Data (ISSN 2306-5729). This special issue belongs to the section "Computational Biology, Bioinformatics, and Biomedical Data Science".
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 June 2021).
The frequent occurrence of infectious diseases continues to presents substantial challenges to public health under global urbanization. How to improve the surveillance systems, transmission and control for an emerging infectious disease under the condition of urbanization has become an urgent problem. Applying mathematical modelling in the epidemics spread was first investigated in 1927. Although there is no guarantee that the current mathematical models are completely consistent with the actual propagation process, the extremely close and accurate simulation is still of great help. This could guide policy makers on adjusting measures to reduce the risk of bigger outbreaks.
Topics of the research papers for this Special Issue include but are not limited to: data-driven models for forecasting and controlling of the epidemics; visualization and analytics tools that overcome cost and resource barriers to achieve data needs; coordinating on data sharing among groups; statistical or AI-driven models to control or contain outbreaks.
