IEEE Journal on Multiscale and Multiphysics Computational Techniques Special Section on Multiphysics Modeling and Inversion in Subsurface Sensing

Expected online publication: December 2022

Image credit: Prof.  Jiefu Chen, University of Houston

The 2022 volume of the IEEE Journal on Multiscale and Multiphysics Computational Techniques (IEEE J-MMCT) will include a special section dedicated to recent progress of advanced multiphysics modeling and inversion algorithms in subsurface sensing.

This section is dedicated to presenting new computational methods or inversion algorithms in subsurface sensing for exploration of underground resources, CO2 sequestration, environment protection, etc. It is comprised of, but not limited to, computational electromagnetic/seismic/mechanic methods, nonlinear multiphysics modeling, new inversion algorithms (joint inversion, high-order gradient/gradient-free optimizations etc.), machine learning techniques, digital twins, and the relevant engineering applications. It is noteworthy that multi-scale and multi-physics features are encouraged, but advanced forward or inverse methods for single-physics or single-scale modeling are also welcomed. The J-MMCT Editorial Board will review every paper in the same manner as any other regular submission.

Paper submission is accomplished through the ScholarOne Manuscript Central website (http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/jmmct-ieee). When you start a new submission to the special section, please choose in Advanced Multiphysics Modeling and Inversion Algorithms in Subsurface Sensing as the type of your submission.

When you prepare your manuscript you should consult the instructions, templates and resources available at the IEEE Authors’ Center (https://ieeeauthorcenter.ieee.org). Papers not following the standard IEEE journal template cannot be accepted into the peer review process. Please be aware that your contribution should be prepared as any other regular J-MMCT paper and that it will be evaluated via the same peer-review process. The quality of your contribution must meet the level required for a publication at J-MMCT.

Submissions are accepted any time, but no later than July 15th, 2022, 11:59 PM. If you have any questions, you can contact the Editor-in-Chief (Prof. Costas Sarris at eic-jmmct@ieee.org), or the Guest Editors:
