Dear friends and colleagues,

There may currently be some confusion about the venue of the 6th Global 
Conference on Economic Geography (GCEG) due to announcements and websites of 
groups claiming to host the 6th GCEG in 2021. As organizers of the previous 
GCEGs and the 5th Conference forthcoming in Cologne, we would like to point out 
that so far we have NOT confirmed support to any group or venue.

We believe that all future GCEGs should be organized in ways that reflect broad 
base support from home and international community, and represent the diversity 
of economic geography, including a good balance of organizing committee members 
by gender and career stage.

We hope to be able to announce the organizers and venue of the 6th GCEG at this 
year's GCEG in Cologne:<>
