WINDFALL: Wireless Network Data Fusion for Analysing Indoor Social Distancing Levels

Contact tracing apps are designed to quickly identify and interrupt infection chains using communication technologies. While geolocation approaches have been considered at an early stage, the most promising solutions now rely on the use of Bluetooth and signal strength measurements. However, although these solutions can trace an infected person's contacts quickly, they suffer from significant issues, which suggest that the production of advanced social distancing indicators and manual tracing are still needed. WINDFALL will implement a platform for monitoring crowd behaviour patterns in ...

Covid-19 Detection by Cough and Voice Analysis (CDCVA)

Emergency service hospital center receives a huge number of calls in epidemic period, among these calls there are critical cases that need rapid intervention, it may be delayed to answer these cases. Therefore, we suggest a solution by giving an indication of health status of the person calling directly when hearing his voice and cough. This indicator depends on finding a degree of correspondence between the caller's voice, cough signatures and that of certain patients with the Covid-19 virus. The solution proposed by CDCVA project can also be used effectively by health professionals for re...

CoLiBri - COVID19 Literature Browser for Scientific Investigations

Researchers around the world are in a race against the clock to find treatments, vaccines and diagnosis methods for COVID19. A major hurdle lies in the necessity to digest an abundant scientific literature which grows by the day. Keeping up with such a growth requires appropriate visual text analytics software, combining the power of text mining algorithms with the flexibility of interactive visualizations. The CoLiBri proposal aims to give free access to the COVID19 researcher community around the world to the Papyrus literature visualization software developed at LIST (https://colibri...

Impact of the Covid-19 crisis on employment participation of older workers

The objective of this project is to investigate the impact of the current COVID-19 crisis on the employment participation of older workers in Luxembourg. Due to demographics shifts, improving the employment participation of older workers is essential in order to sustain the pension insurance system. In the context of the COVID-19 crisis, older workers need particular attention as the labor market is affected in a profound way. First, since the crisis, many employees are able to work remotely. However, sectors where telework is not a practical option such as construction, real estate, manufa...

What is the impact of random mixing on the spread of COVID-19 in Luxembourg?

Mathematical modelling of the spread of the SARS-COV-2 virus is being used around the world to measure the impact of non-pharmaceutical interventions and make predictions on the numbers of infected individuals and deaths. This project aims to build an agent-based model that can be used to measure the impact of random mixing between strangers, on the spread of COVID-19. While social security data can be used to construct a network of permanent home, work and school contacts, such data neglects the random mixing of strangers that takes place in, for example, bars, restaurants, shops and publi...

M-Covid: Mobile phone-based spatiotemporal analysis of population density and movement in the con...

In response to the COVID-19 health crisis, the government of Luxembourg like in many other countries has implemented social distancing and containment measures. From one day to the next, people's daily lives were disrupted. The aim of this project is to visualize and analyse the evolution of the spatial practices of individuals before, during and after this health crisis. This project is based on mobile phone data provided by a national operator. Based on such datasets, accurate and detailed maps of the population distribution can be produced for a given period of time, while ensuring that ...

Mobile app based dietary assistance and intervention trial to reduce risk of COVID-19 and severity

The COVID-19 pandemic has caused disturbancies regarding normal dietary behaviour, food consumption patterns, and shopping attitudes. Several studies have shown that poor dietary choices low in proteins and vitamins and minerals/trace-elements can increase the risk of viral infections due to a less optimally functioning immune-system. In our ongoing EU project LIFANA (AAL-CALL-2017-013, May 2018-Oct 2020, 2.1M€, (www.lifana.eu), coordinator: LIST) we have already developed a mobile app prototype that provides personalized meal plans and visualizes calories and nutrients in relationship to W...

Spatio-temporal simulation of COVID-19 spread using a coupled diffusion-SEIRD model

The recent worldwide outbreak of COVID-19 has led to a surge of interest in the modeling and simulation of infectious disease outbreaks. One particular reason of interest is the prediction of the geo-localization of the spikes of the outbreak to allocate promptly medical resources. Classical compartment models based on the Susceptible-Infected-Recovered (SIR) dynamics and their extensions, generally include the space dependence by a discretization of the region of interest related to the geopolitical compartments (counties, provinces, states, countries). In this project, we aim to develop ...
