CILS - 8th Biennial Symposium on International Arbitration and Dispute Resolution
Article from: TDM 4 (2014), in Editorial
Five articles have been selected for publication from the presentations given at the Biennial CILS International Arbitration Symposium held 22-25 May at Leopoldskron Palace in Salzburg, Austria. The arbitration symposium emerged from the construction law conferences James J. Myers began organising with CILS in the late 1990s. This eighth iteration of the symposium was chaired by Mr. Laurent Hirsch of Hirsch Kobel, Geneva and Ms. Silvia Marchili of King & Spalding, Houston, who assembled a varied program of expert and entertaining panellists and moderators from around the world.
Rather than offer a series of ex cathedra sermons, the symposium aims to enable arbitration specialists to raise, to explore and to debate pressing issues of international arbitration - openly, frankly and still discreetly.
The results of such "conversations" are not easily rendered in writing. Five offers by this year's participants to elaborate their contributions into papers suitable for publication have been chosen. For this, we thank them, and we thank TDM for its ongoing support as the Symposium's media sponsor.
The five selected articles are:
"Challenges for the Future: The Diminishing Role of Consent in Arbitration"
by Margaret L. Moses
"Documentary Evidence and Document Production in International Arbitration"
by Courtney Lotfi
"E-Discovery in International Arbitration - Still a Hot Topic?"
by Jennifer Bryant
"Investment Arbitration: Effects of an Arbitral Award Rendered in a Related Contractual Dispute"
by Maja Stanivukovic
"Arbitrator Decision Making: Unconscious Psychological Influences And What You Can Do About Them"
by Edna Sussmann
We hope that TDM readers will find these papers as useful, perhaps even as enjoyable, as we found their authors' involvement in the Symposium.
