Epidemic Processes on Complex Networks

Description

Nowadays, the omnipresent networks have formed an integral part of our daily work and life. As a double-edged sword, these networks also provide fertile grounds for the rapid propagation of epidemic, resulting in immeasurable disruptions. As a promising alternative to antidote/patch, epidemic modeling is regarded as an effective approach to the understanding of the macrolevel propagation behavior of epidemic and has become a well-established area in recent years.

We invite authors to contribute original research articles as well as review articles that will stimulate the continuing efforts to understand the propagating laws of epidemic and to evaluate the cost and effectiveness of different epidemic-containing policies through in-depth model analysis. We are particularly interested in articles proposing and studying novel dynamic models for epidemic processes in networks.

Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:

  • Recent developments in the area of epidemic modeling in networks
  • Dynamic models of disease spreading in networks
  • Dynamic models of computer viruses/worm propagation in networks
  • Dynamic models of rumor spreading in networks
  • Statistical analysis of epidemic
  • Immunization strategies
  • Epidemic control
