Dear friends and colleagues
We are writing to invite you to participate in a series of sessions which
we will organize at the Second Global Conference on Economic Geography
which will be held in Beijing from 25-28 June, 2007. We are organizing
sessions that will draw together research in the field of Evolutionary
Economic Geography. All papers are welcomed that address key issues in
Evolutionary Economic Geography, such as the spatial evolution of firm
dynamics, the spatial evolution of clusters, the spatial evolution of
industries, the spatial evolution of networks and the evolution of
urban/regional systems. We would like to ask you to join in this effort
as presenter or discussant.
This conference is the sequel to the first highly successful Global
Conference on Economic Geography held in Singapore in 2000. With alomst
200 academic participants from 30 countries, the Singapore conference was
significant in spurring on economic-geographic dialogue in a sustained
manner worldwide. This conference will discuss and debate current and new
research agendas in economic geography. For additional information about
the conference, registration, etc. please proceed to the conference
