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 GCEG.org and has been acquired and maintained by the GCEG Committee.
www.gceg.org<http://www.gceg.org/> 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.

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.
