Call for Conference Proposals

2022-23 Global Consortium of Entrepreneurship Centers (GCEC) – Conference Proposals

The Call for Presenters is now open for submitting proposals to present or lead a session at this year’s Global Consortium of Entrepreneurship Centers (GCEC) Conference in Las Vegas on October 27-29, 2022.


The conference is being hosted by the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV) and its Troesh Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation, and we expect the 2022 GCEC Conference to be the largest and best conference to-date.


Proposals are due by July 5, 2022. To submit a proposal, click here.


To submit a proposal, please provide a 2-3 paragraph summary of what you intend to talk about, with a length of about 125 to 250 words.  You can include your proposed panelists, if applicable (they don’t need to be 100% confirmed at the time of submission). Proposals will need to uploaded as PDF into the Reviewr system.


Leading a session is a great way to share your learnings with other schools, meet colleagues from other universities with similar interests or programs, and gain visibility for your program. You can submit a Talk, Workshop, Panel, or Roundtable. Anyone from any university from any country is welcome to apply and attend the conference.


The overarching tracks this year are:


  • Entrepreneurship Education
  • Entrepreneurship Education: Beyond the Business School

  • Novel facilities to encourage entrepreneurship and innovation
  • The Center: How, What, Where, Why?
  • Entrepreneurial Outcomes

You are welcome to propose any topic related to entrepreneurship. You can propose more than one topic or panel, if you have multiple areas of interest. Proposals are submitted by simply providing a brief description here on the “Reviewr” platform.


Deadline to submit is Tuesday, July 5, 2022.
