Suggested topics that are suitable for this session can be at any level of analysis and deal with any aspect of entrepreneurship or innovation. Levels of analysis span a wide range, including (from macroscopic to microscopic): • the space industry (aka the "field" level of analysis) • an entire industry sector (aka the "community" level, e.g., space transportation), or a broad category of industry capability (e.g. Propulsion) • an industry segment or sub-sector (aka the "population" level, e.g., human suborbital), or a more specific industry capability (e.g., liquid rockets, or solid rocket motors) • an individual firm (aka the "organization" level) • a portion of a firm, or a group of individuals within a firm (aka the "sub-unit" level) • an individual (unsurprisingly referred to as the "individual" level) Example topics that would be suitable for this session include descriptions of new market sectors, new businesses, new business plans, new projects, recent experiences of start-up companies, etc. ABSTRACT GUIDELINES: The submitted abstract should not exceed one page (approximately 300-400 words). The purpose of an abstract is to enable the abstract evaluation and paper selection committee to understand the essential hypothesis, method and findings of the research.
