The Australian Summer Beckons…
But you have less than 2 weeks to submit
ACERE Conference 2015 call for abstracts will close at midnight AEST Monday 11 August 2014.
The annual Australian Centre for Entrepreneurship Research Exchange (ACERE) Conference is the premier Australian-based event dedicated to the growth, support and promotion of entrepreneurship. It is designed to be a highly developmental and professionally rewarding experience for all delegates.
A very strong group of invited international “stars” in key roles. This year we can boast David Audretsch; Patricia McDougall; Dean Shepherd, and David Storey. Read more about our Keynote Speakers here.
A highly developmental format throughout, and in particular for those who opt for a “Paper Development Session”. In these you get comprehensive feedback from peers who have read your paper as well as from your chair, who is a highly experienced and recognized international researcher (including the above four people and myself). The conference also features a doctoral consortium, a policy forum and a special session planned on business model design and reconfiguration.
The conference is completely devoted to entrepreneurship scholarship and its size is manageable; some 100-150 participants, making for a very enjoyable experience
If you’re from the Northern hemisphere, February is a very good time to go…somewhere else, like Australia. The 2015 Conference, to be held at the stately North Terrace campus of the research-intensive University of Adelaide from February 3 – 6, will be no exception. So if you have some exciting research to share with the world, this is your chance to shine.
Of particular note for 2015, we have a special session planned on business model design and reconfiguration, to be run in conjunction with the Conference. And the ever popular wide range of other highly informative and stimulating sessions, including:
- Keynote addresses from pre-eminent scholars around the globe
- Paper presentations and development workshops
- Lively networking and social functions PLUS bonus Policy Forum for early registrants
This is an outstanding opportunity to extract even greater value from your attendance at the 2015 ACERE Conference. To learn more about the history of ACERE you can read Professor Murray Gillin’s 2014 address, “An Historical Perspective on AGSE-ERE/ACERE Entreprepreneurship Research Exchange Conference and its Antecedents” here.
Coinciding with the 2015 ACERE Conference is the Policy Forum on Entrepreneurial Ecosystems and Regional Development: Bridging the Valley of Death and Capturing Value in Regions, on Tuesday 3 February 2015.
The Policy Forum will feature outstanding keynote academics, including Professors David Audretsch from the USA and David Storey from the UK as well as our own local academic team Professor Göran Roos and Dr Allan O’Connor. Interactive engagement will be a feature of the Forum to raise and discuss issues of policy challenges and approaches to resolve them. Using the local Adelaide movement to stimulate the Entrepreneurial Ecosystem as a case study, the forum will focus on how to address localised issues in the morning before moving to reflect and gather international perspectives on the topic in the afternoon.
