Topical Collection: Interdisciplinary - Data-Enabled Discovery and Applications

This special collection continues to provide avenues of dissemination for researchers using the increased availability of extensive data sets to quantitatively model real-world systems, and seek new discoveries, innovations and applications, often across the boundaries of traditional disciplines. Especially sought are contributions investigating novel research strategies so as to enable scientific discoveries, engineering innovations, or advances in medical diagnosis, prognosis, and treatment.

  • Balances general solution techniques with problem-specific results
  • Offers a forum for sharing methods and best practices that reveal patterns and associations embedded in data
  • Highlights data-centric tools created or cross-utilized to solve discipline-specific problems, and include suggestions for broader applications

Guest Editors:
