Cyber-Physical Systems in Pandemic Monitoring and Management

This special issue addresses the timely theme of tackling challenges associated with managing infectious diseases.  As witnessed in the outbreaks of many infectious diseases such as SARS and swine flu over the past couple of decades, and more recently another wave of global pandemic, the substantial volume of human traffic from country to country has posed substantial challenges to public health systems.

Utilizing integrated solutions of computation, networked sensors, and physical processes; cyber-physical systems are well-suited as monitoring systems for effective disease-spread simulation analysis that enables health resource management in tackling the current global epidemic as well as any infectious disease outbreaks that may happen in the future.

Given the urgent need for modeling disease transmission behavior in highly infectious risk areas and mitigation strategies under different outbreak circumstances, this special issue invites manuscript submissions in the following topics, but not limited to:

  • Physical processes in air quality control for ventilation enhancement
  • Disease transmission and spread modelling
  • Pandemic data protection and management system architecture
  • Social impact and socio-technology development of CPS in healthcare
  • Data mining and analytics for analyzing public health data
  • Model-based design, validation and implementation of CPS
  • Model driven disease transmission simulation
  • Transportation scenarios in confined spaces (e.g. trains, ships, airplanes)
  • Sensor networks
  • Data Fusion of epidemiological knowledge
  • Ethical and regulatory issues concerning CPS deployment in fighting pandemic
