Dear all

Further to our chair Peter Dannenberg's earlier announcement, we would like to 
inform you that the official website domain for all GCEGs is and has 
been acquired and maintained by the GCEG Committee.<>

We have tentatively linked it to the original GCEG 2000 NUS website for now 
(you can even check out those photos taken in December 2000!). The 
new/contemporary website is under construction in conjunction with GCEG 2021 
Dublin (expected by end 2018). Please note that this is the definitive domain 
for all GCEG matters.


The GCEG Committee:

Peter Dannenberg (Chair; Cologne), Henry Yeung (Singapore), Weidong Liu 
(Beijing), Dariusz Wojcik (Oxford), and Dieter F. Kogler (Dublin)

Subject: Global Conference on Economic Geography - Committee established

Dear All

We are very pleased to inform you that a standing committee of the Global 
Conference on Economic Geography ("GCEG Committee") has been established and 
that the following governance and principles of all future GCEG events were 
announced at the Cologne GCEG gala dinner. We expect that these will serve our 
community well in future.

1. GCEG Committee
?         Comprising (1) one member from each of the past GCEG organising 
committees AND (2) the chairperson of the incoming GCEG (e.g. Dublin 2021). The 
current committee members are listed at the end of this email.
?         Each member of the GCEG Committee must be a tenured or permanent 
faculty member in an academic institution.
?         Chair: to be elected from among existing members excluding the member 
organizing the incoming GCEG; chair to be rotated after each GCEG.
?         Mandate: preparing and announcing Call for Proposals and selecting 
and ensuring broad implementation of each GCEG.

2. GCEG Principles
?         Broad-based support from home institution(s) and national 
geographical communities/societies.
?         Commitment to the global scope and diversity of the conference.
?         Commitment to supporting research students and early career faculty.
?         Local organizing committee should have a fair balance of members by 
gender and career stage.

3. GCEG Timetable
?         Call for Proposals (CfP): to be send out at least 9 months before 
each GCEG (e.g. in September 2020 before June 2021 Dublin GCEG), with a 
proposal submission deadline of 3 months before the GCEG event. The selected 
host/institution will be announced at the GCEG.
?         Frequency of GCEG: every 3 years.

Thank you and we look forward to your continuous support of this global event 
among economic geographers worldwide.

The GCEG Committee:

Peter Dannenberg (Chair; Cologne), Henry Yeung (Singapore), Weidong Liu 
(Beijing), Dariusz Wojcik (Oxford), and Dieter F. Kogler (Dublin)
