4th Annual Deshpande Symposium for Innovation
and Entrepreneurship in Higher Education

June 9-11, 2015 in Lowell, Massachusetts

Call for Panel Proposals

Panel Proposal Submission Form

The conference sessions are structured around panel presentations on common themes. We encourage the submission of full-panel proposals, but will consider individual presentations that align with panel topics. All submissions should clearly identify which of the three conference tracks they align with:

  • Entrepreneurship in the Curriculum
  • University Commercialization and Startups
  • Developing Entrepreneurial Universities: Culture & Ecosystems

For individual proposals, we will do our best to match you to the most appropriate panel based on your area of interest and panel availability.

Each panel session will be allocated 90 minutes. Target presentation length is 10 – 15 minutes maximum. Assuming additional time for questions and audience interaction, we recommend a maximum of 4 presentations per session. Exceptions will be made on a case by case basis.

Please use our Panel Proposal Submission Form to submit your proposals.

Deadline for Panel Proposal Submissions: March 10, 2014
