*Applied Network Science Special Issue on*


Networks are ubiquitous in natural, technological and social systems. They
offer a fertile framework for understanding and controlling the diffusion
of ideas, rumors, and infectious diseases of plants, animals and humans.
Despite recent advances, many challenging scientific questions remains
about the correct tools and their practical role in epidemics dynamics and
effective strategies supporting public health decision making. The goal of
this special issue is to offer a platform to the interdisciplinary
community of scientists working on the diffusion process on networks and
its plethora of applications. We hope for a broad range of topics to be
covered, across theory, methodology, and application to empirical data with
a special emphasis on epidemic spreading. Topics of interest include but
are not limited to theoretical aspects, algorithms, methods, and fields of
applications, as:

·       Mobility & Epidemics

·       Meta population models

·       Diffusion in structured populations

·       Emerging infectious diseases models

·       Multi-host transmission

·       Multi-pathogen / multi-strain interaction in humans, animals and

·       Interacting spreading processes

·       Spreading phenomena on multilayer networks

·       Awareness & epidemic spreading

·       Opinions/Ideas/Beliefs diffusion

·       Multi-host / Multi-pathogen transmission

·       Multilayer networks in epidemiology and ecology

·       Multi-species population dynamics models

·       Dynamics of infectious diseases of humans

·       Dynamics of infectious diseases of livestock

·       Dynamics of infectious diseases of plants

·       Dynamics of infectious diseases of wildlife

·       Immunization strategies

·       Global and public health aspects of control and prevention

·       Infectious disease surveillance

·       Forecasting of Pandemic Outbreak using Machine Learning

·       Pandemic spread inhibition with IoT based Machine Learning Systems

·       Emerging technologies for handling Pandemic Challenges

·       Effect of Pandemic at Economy

·       Diffusion of information and innovations

·       Memes
