The CODATA Task Group on Advanced mathematical tools for
data-driven applied systems analysis
<https://codata.org/initiatives/task-groups/applied-systems-analysis/> has
released a call for articles on Resilience in the Digital Age.

Interested researchers are invited to submit articles to a volume in the
Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science / Lecture Notes in Artificial
Intelligence (LNCS/LNAI) series with the above title.

The growth of a global digital economy has enabled rapid communication,
instantaneous movement of funds, availability of vast amounts of
information. With this come challenges such as the vulnerability of
digitized socio-technological systems to destructive events (natural
disasters such as earthquakes and disease events, and manmade disasters due
to mistakes or deliberate attacks) and the disruption of standard jobs
replaced by networked robotics and humans working alongside intelligent
machines. Similar issues arise with respect to complex linked natural and
social systems at the center of changing climates, evolving urban
environments, and questions about availability and equal access to food,
water, and energy. The notion of “resilience” has emerged as an organizing
principle for understanding and managing complex socio-technological and
natural-social systems. The deluge of data from in-situ sensors, online
activities, satellite imagery, etc., makes it possible to observe
socio-technological and socio-ecological dynamics across temporal and
spatial scales. Today’s digital world of big data, massive computing
capacity, and Artificial Intelligence creates an opportunity to transform
approaches to building resilience into such systems.

This volume will explore the use of tools of mathematics, data science and
systems analysis to explore:

   1. Vulnerability and sustainability of large-scale socio-technological
   systems, critical infrastructures, and natural-social systems to the
   destructive impacts of various kinds;
   2. Robotization, internet of things, and their impact on economic and
   social development around the world;
   3. The relevance of Big Data and FAIR Data

There are no formal requirements to the article length or other parameters.

Authors are asked to inform the editors immediately of their intent to
submit a manuscript. Draft manuscripts are requested by 30 June, 2020.

Questions, expressions of interest, and submissions should be addressed to
the volume co- editors:

Professor Fred Roberts, Director of Command, Control and Interoperability
Center for Advanced Data Analysis (CCICADA), Emeritus Director of the
Center for Discrete Mathematics and Theoretical Computer Science (DIMACS),
Rutgers University: froberts at dimacs.rutgers.edu

Professor Igor Sheremet, Deputy Director for Science of the Russian
Foundation for Basic Research, Corresponding Member of Russian Academy of
Sciences: sheremet at rfbr.ru
