Did you miss the ACERE Abstract Deadline?
Another great conference experience in a beautiful, sunny location
A message from the ACERE team and Professor Per Davidsson after returning from the (AOM) Annual Meeting – Academy of Management in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada on August 7-11, 2015.
Many of you are just back from a great conference experience in beautiful, sunny Vancouver. This email is to remind you that you can have a great conference experience in a beautiful, sunny location in February as well – if you submit an abstract for the 2016 ACERE Conference on Australia’s Gold Coast. Well, actually you have missed the boat because the submission portal officially closed earlier this week. However, the great news and luckily for you, it is now possible to participate despite missing the last deadline due to other commitments, returning from AOM or only just heard about ACERE 2016.
Although it doesn’t appear on the website, the submission portal will remain open for another week with a new deadline: Monday 24 August 2015 at midnight AEST.
All that is needed right now is an extended abstract, so you will have ample time to prepare the full paper in the coming months.
As usual, the ACERE Conference will offer both the nice location and the high scholarly quality that you experienced at AOM. What we can’t promise you is the competition of 10,000 other participants – ACERE is a boutique meeting of approximately 125-150 people. Expect standing in shorter lines for better coffee! More importantly, in terms of interactivity and feedback on your research, you should expect to be delighted! Our strong set of keynotes includes: Saras D. Sarasvathy, Bill Schulze, Dean Shepherd and Charlene Zietsma. These scholars will also serve as Chairs for our “Paper Development Sessions”, which is one of the formats to which you can direct your submission.
Looking forward to seeing you Down Under in February!
