    The Spatial Econometrics Association appeared on the scene only five years ago during a time of unprecedented expansion of research activities in the field. This paper tries to summarize the developments that occurred in this first lustrum of life of the Association. The review considers more than 230 papers that appeared in the last five years in various scientific journals. The emerging picture is that of a field that is still experiencing its phase of rapid growth with a large number of theoretical developments together with a progressive enlargement of the fields of application outside the traditional ones. R�SUM� L'association Spatial Econometrics Association a fait son apparition il y a tout juste 5 ans, dans une époque marquée par une expansion sans pareille des travaux de recherche sur ce sujet. Cette communication s'efforce de résumer les développements sur venus dans cette premi�re période d'existence de l'association. L'examen porte sur 237 communications parues au cours des 5 derni�res années dans différentes publications scientifiques. Le tableau qui en ressort est celui d'un domaine qui traverse encore une phase d'expansion rapide, marquée par un grand nombre de développements th�oriques ainsi qu'un élargissement progressif des champs d'application au-del� des domaines traditionnels. R esumen La Asociaci�n de Econometriía Espacial apareci� en escena tan s�lo 5 a�os atr�s durante un período de expansi�n sin precedentes de las actividades de investigaci�n en este campo. Este estudio intenta resumir los logros de la Asociaci�n en su primer lustro de vida. Esta rese�a considera 237 estudios que han sido publicados en los �ltimos 5 a�os en diversas revistas científicas. La imagen que surge es de un campo que est� a�n experimentando su fase de r�pido crecimiento con un alto n�mero de logros te�ricos junto con un crecimiento progresivo de los campos de aplicaci�n fuera de los tradicionales.
