Cfa/ Cfp GCEG 2018, July 24-28 "SMEs, Family Firms, and Economic 
Geography"

Special Track - SMEs, Family Firms, and Economic Geography
5th Global Conference on Economic Geography (GCEG) 2018, July 24-28, 
Cologne (Germany)

Chair - Lech Suwala (Technische Universität zu Berlin / 
Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin)
Co-Chair - Rodrigo Basco (American University of Sharjah)

In the face of big business, big data and big transitions, there are 
still small and medium enterprises (SMEs), many of them family firms 
which provide the economic backbone and continuity in most economies. 
SMEs and family firms comprise diverse types of businesses from 
traditional Japanese century-old dynasties, America’s family farms, 
Germany’s Mittelstand to novel Shanghai and Silicon Valley’ elites. 
Simultaneously, they are geographically uneven phenomena with regard to 
their distribution, impact on, and interplay with the local, regional, 
and national level that require more academic attention in the field of 
economic geography.
We invite Economic Geographers and scholars from adjacent disciplines 
such as Regional Economics, Management, Organization Studies, and 
International Business with interest in spatialities of SMEs and 
families firms – in particular spaces (locations, places, landscapes) 
and scales (from local to global) to submit their research. Our 
rationale is to initiate a profound debate – independent of the 
methodological approach (qualitative or quantitative) – on SMEs and/or 
family businesses from a spatial context to shed light on past and 
current SME and/or family firm peculiarities and trajectories from 
around the world.

Conceptual, empirical and methodological papers might address, but are 
not limited to:
Conceptual and theoretical debates about the nature of SME/Family firms.
Evolution and trajectories of SME/ Family firms.
Contribution and impact of SME/ Family firms on the economy.
SME/ Family firm specific issues (succession, governance, reputation, 
professionnalisation etc.) in a spatial context.

To submit your abstract/paper, please visit the GCEG 2018 website; the 
call for abstracts will be open from November 15, 2017
- March 15, 2018. For any other inquiries, feel free to contact us Lech 
Suwala ([log in to unmask])
and/or Rodrigo Basco ([log in to unmask]).
