Inaugural call for papers: 

Papers are now being accepted for the brand new Addressing Grand Challenges with Systems Sciences minitrack, which will debut as a part of the Decision Analytics, Mobile Services, and Service Science track at HICSS 2016.

This new minitrack provides a forum for the discussion of the world's most important or challenging problems, and the role that system science can play in resolving those problems. In contrast to papers which focus on a narrow problem domain, this new minitrack seeks submissions which address big, important issues, the resolution of which would be widely beneficial to mankind. Papers that propose innovative, ambitious, or unusual system science-based solutions to humanity's greatest problems are particularly encouraged. 

Papers which leverage the system sciences to address any of the world's most important or challenging problems are welcome. Problem domains of interest include, but are not limited to:
  * Biodiversity
  * Climate change and other environmental issues
  * Economic stability and prosperity
  * Education
  * Energy
  * Geopolitical stability
  * Global development
  * Health, disease, and other medical issues
  * Human rights
  * Hunger, poverty, and clean drinking water
  * Natural disasters
  * Sustainability
  * Women's rights

Paper submissions are due by 15 June 2015. More information, including submission instructions, can be found at: http://www.hicss.org
