Call for Abstracts ACERE2021

Please join us for ACERE 2021 (9 to 12 February 2021 in collaboration with this year’s major sponsor Bond University).

After careful consideration of the current situation and potential future scenarios, the ACERE Academic Committee decided unanimously that ACERE 2021 will take place.

At this point, we cannot provide final details about the delivery of the conference, but we are prepared for various scenarios, including physical location, online, or even both at the same time that will allow you to participate in various forms; zoom in for papers sessions, observe and participate in workshops, submit video recordings of your sessions. 

We are of course considering the impact that the form of delivery might have on the time of scheduling the sessions within the conference program, as well as the cost of registration for individual delegates. 

While we acknowledge the level of uncertainty that many entrepreneurship researchers around the world are facing these days, the abstract submission deadline has now been moved to later in the year and we are pleased to announce that the abstract submission portal is now open! So please join us and contribute to this great community spirit that makes entrepreneurship research and the ACERE conference so special.

The abstract deadline is 17 August 2020

Please note: An invitation to submit full papers for presentation at the conference is upon acceptance to of your abstract.  Further notification of acceptances and the mode of delivery will be emailed to the submitting authors early September 2020 along with additional information on what form the conference may take and how you might deliver your presentation and interact with conference participants.  At this stage full papers will be due on or before 6 November 2020 (only full papers submitted on or before this date will be peer reviewed, will qualify for awards, and will qualify to be nominated for a PDS Session)

Although ACERE2021 might be a little different we are very much looking forward to again making ACERE a very positive and valued experience for you and your colleagues.

We encourage you to welcome your colleagues and students to submit now for ACERE 2021.

As a first-time participant and a new doctoral student just 6 months in, the conference has been extremely useful for me in terms of my own personal learning and in meeting new, liked-minded individuals. I would definitely encourage more of my friends to apply the conference in the future.
