Join the ACERE Doctoral Consortium!
Are you pursuing a PhD on an entrepreneurship-related topic? Or are you supervisor or just know someone who does? Then this is message is for you! Give your PhD journey a boost by joining the Doctoral Consortium at the ACERE conference in Sydney in February.
The participants will have close interaction with and receive guidance from several, top level international scholars in entrepreneurship, including Dean Shepherd, Saras Sarasvathy, and Per Davidsson. The Doctoral Consortium will run for a full day on the Tuesday (4 Feb) before the main conference begins. This day will be devoted mainly to student presentations followed by feedback and group discussion of each student’s project. These discussions will provide very useful advice on how to reach the goal timely and with high quality – while enjoying the journey!
Participants will also be invited to partake actively as reviewers in Paper Development Sessions (PDS) during the main conference, where they can learn directly from the horse’s mouth how top scholars think and act as authors, mentors, reviewers, and editors. This gives invaluable insights into the important topic of how to get published. The group of international experts cover a range of disciplines, topical specialties, and methods expertise. You will also get the chance to discuss with the experienced scholars who facilitate the DC in breaks and throughout the conference.
To participate in the Doctoral Consortium you need to register for the ACERE conference, and you are expected to participate in and benefit from the main conference as well. You can express your interest in the Doctoral Consortium here. Expressions of interest must be submitted by November 30. Regrettably, we cannot accommodate more than 20 participants, so if we have access demand we cannot guarantee that all interested students will be selected. Selected students will be requested to prepare in advance a) a concise presentation of their PhD project and b) written reviews of two papers to be discussed in the PDS. Further instructions relating to these tasks will be sent to selected students.
