    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.
