List of Sessions

Dear colleagues,

Under the umbrella topic “Dynamics in an Unequal World”, the University of Cologne invites you to participate in the fifth Global Conference on Economic Geography 2018 (GCEG) to be held in Cologne, Germany.

We invite all geographers and scholars from related disciplines who are dealing with questions on economic and social inequalities on different spatial scales. Following the tradition of its predecessors, the GCEG is open to all topics in the broader field of Economic Geography.

The conference will incorporate a wide range of items on the agenda. We expect to welcome more than 500 participants from over 60 countries, including some of the most prestigious scholars from the discipline. Apart from scientific paper sessions, the conference will also include excursions and walking tours to different destinations in and around Cologne, an ice-breaker party, and a conference dinner.
We are delighted to be hosting a broad variety of sessions covering recent trends in the field of Economic Geography. We warmly invite you to participate in the Global Conference on Economic Geography 2018 by submitting abstracts for oral and poster presentations. Please find detailed information on the call for abstracts (November 15, 2017 – March 15, 2018) here.

This document provides you with a detailed list of all sessions available at the GCEG 2018. Beside these, abstract submission for open session or poster session are also very welcome.
