Call for Papers – EPJ Data Science – Individual and Collective Human Mobility

The EPJ Data Science journal has announced a Call for Papers fora new special issue in Human Mobility and Gourab Ghoshal has been invited to be one of the guest editors. This special issue aims at collecting contributions on the recent advances in human mobility description, modeling, and prediction, as well as presenting novel interdisciplinary applications. This issue welcomes submissions of high-quality articles containing original research results and survey articles of exceptional merit.
Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Human trajectories: generative models, next location prediction
  • Individual activity patterns: activity-based models, mobility motifs
  • Human mobility and spreading processes
  • Human mobility and social networks
  • Spatial flows: trip demand estimation, commute flows, migration flows
  • Traffic: congestion and road usage, optimal vehicle routing, traffic forecast
  • Pedestrian dynamics: crowd dynamics, indoor and short distance mobility
  • Shared mobility: public transport, car and ride sharing, self-organised mobility
  • Human mobility and nowcasting (unemployment, well-being, dynamic population mapping)
  • Human mobility and smart cities, multi-modal mobility
