The ICC Court of Arbitration and ICC Panama are organizing their biennial International Arbitration Conference on 30 January to discuss topics regarding the recent developments of arbitration in Latin America and the world. This conference will be preceded by an ICC YAF Conference 29 January 2018.


ICC PANARB is a conference organized every two years, with the goal of analyzing recent developments of international arbitration in the Latin-American region and the world. This edition of the conference will include debates related to effective arbitral agreements, bifurcation of the arbitral proceeding, the use of technology in international arbitration and an overview of the New ICC Report on IT. It will feature a simulation of an ICC Court session, which will count on the participation of ICC Court Members and will be focused on the scrutiny of an arbitral award.

On the eve of the ICC PANARB (29 January 2018), the Latin-American Chapter of the ICC Young Arbitrators Forum (ICC YAF) is organizing an event, which will feature an interactive mock-case on international arbitration. More information about this ICC YAF program and how to register will be available shortly!
