The 5th edition of the Paper Development Seminar (5PDS) will be held in Seville, on April 25th-26th, 2022.

Last year, the 4PDS took place virtually, and was highly successful.

This year, we have decided to organize the 5PDS completely in person at the University of Seville (Spain). Nevertheless, if the sanitary circumstances are unfavourable, the seminar will be changed to virtual.

Papers / proposals applying a process perspective to entrepreneurship are welcome. We are open to any contributions analysing the entrepreneurial process, may they be conceptual or empirical and, in this latter case, using quantitative (ideally longitudinal, but also cross-sectional) and/or qualitative methods.

Submissions will be peer reviewed. Those deemed of highest potential by the organizing committee will be invited to participate. Selected participants will be offered the opportunity to submit a full paper (if they did not do so initially). Extended abstracts may also be presented at the seminar. The objective is to develop a productive and intimate work environment. For this reason, we will limit the number of proposals/papers to be presented, to a maximum of 20.

Profs. Robert Blackburn, Marco van Gelderen, Ulla Hytti and Ute Stephan will attend as keynote speakers and will provide feedback on accepted submissions.
