Special Issue on COVID-19 Visualisation and Modeling


Call for papers for a special issue of the Journal of Data Science, Statistics, and Visualisation on the modeling and visualisation of data about the spread of infectious diseases such as COVID-19. While there is a wealth of data about COVID-19 infections, hospitalizations, and deaths available, meaningful modeling and insightful visualisations of such data is not trivial. For instance, almost all countries use different test strategies, and different rules to count COVID-19 related deaths which makes direct comparisons impossible. The journal welcomes papers with novel contributions on the modeling and/or visualisation of infectious disease data, providing insights in the spreading of the disease and the potential impact of safety measures. Papers with a thorough review and comparison of existing approaches with the potential to provide new insights are also welcome. The deadline for submission of special issue papers is June 30, 2021.
