    Dear international entrepreneurship research community,

    In the name of the Academic Committee of ACERE I am glad to announce this Call for Abstracts for ACERE2021! Come and join us (online, in person, or via other entrepreneurial ways) in Feb 2021! The Australian Centre for Entrepreneurship Research Exchange (ACERE) - the leading annual entrepreneurship research conference in Australasia - has a proud 17 year history and COVID-19 cannot stop us from organising ACERE2021

    After careful consideration of the current situation and potential future scenarios, the ACERE Academic Committee decided unanimously that ACERE 2021 will take place. We welcome you to join us for ACERE 2021 to be held 9 to 12 February 2021 in collaboration with this year's major sponsor Bond University.

    At this point, we cannot provide final details about the delivery of the conference, but we are prepared for various scenarios, including physical location (QUT Brisbane/Bond U), 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. All we need is an abstract - the rest can be figured out later...

    With best wishes from Brisbane, Martin
