New Special Issue: Use of Engineering Techniques to Fight COVID-19

The international journal Ingenius is launching its special volume, planned to be published in January 2022. Therefore, we are inviting all researchers to submit new methods, systems, and innovative Engineering technologies applicable to fight COVID-19 to submit papers to this issue up to November 8, 2021 (Date extended).

Ingenius is a thematic journal, which addresses works related to empirical research, technological development reports, proposals for models and innovations, products from the elaboration of theses, which contribute to the field of science and technology, as well as selected state of the art reviews. This issue has a specific theme, in which all papers should refer to prospective multidisciplinary challenges involving the use of Engineering techniques to fight COVID-19.

To submit a paper, please access the site:

https://ingenius.ups.edu.ec/index.php/ingenius/about/submissions, and follow the instructions in the label “Author Guidelines.”

Why this issue related to COVID-19             

The reason for selecting this subject is twofold. Firstly, the world population is suffering the strong threat of COVID-19. Official data from the beginning of April 2021, provided by the Center for Systems Science and Engineering (CSSE) at Johns Hopkins University (JHU), USA, show that COVID-19 has already affected more than 130 million people worldwide and it is in strong increase. Currently, there are no antiviral drugs with proven clinical efficacy for the treatment of COVID-19, although some drugs that already exist and are administered to patients affected by other diseases have been the subject of studies to find out their possible effectiveness. Several vaccines to prevent specific SARS-CoV-2 infection have been and continue to be developed, however, new variants of the virus are emerging, increasingly challenging the control of the disease. Thus, worldwide scientific efforts, including Engineering, are being carried out both to develop devices, equipment and techniques for the diagnosis of symptomatic and asymptomatic people with COVID-19 (based on signals from oximetry, body temperature, heart rate, blood pression, cough, sweat etc) and to develop drugs and vaccines capable of dealing with the virus. Secondly, frequent outbreaks of COVID-19 and its new variants this is hampered by limited knowledge of the molecular details of how these variants infect human cells, which can put serious pressure on health services.

Thus, global workforce in Engineering is being dedicated to put Science Service, Artificial Intelligence, Methods, Techniques, Devices and Equipment together to this end. Therefore, this thematic issue intends to attract articles on multidisciplinary techniques of Engineering to fight COVID-19, addressing all its aspects, including source and detection technologies for the study, treatment, and prevention of COVID-19; biomedical sensor design and fabrication, performance, processing approaches, and applications; new developments and recent improvements in designs; and the electronics, data processing, and materials of biomedical sensors. This issue provides then a platform for the publication of original and scientific research that is likely to have a worldwide broad impact.

Contributions will be received in English
