11th Annual ICDR Miami International Arbitration Conference

September 11-13, 2013

Biltmore Hotel, Coral Gables, Florida


A Corporate Counsel Series: International Dispute Resolution in the Americas.


The International Centre for Dispute Resolution (ICDR™) has been presenting its Miami International Arbitration Conference for 11 years, always with a concentration on an aspect of international alternative dispute resolution (ADR) that is especially current and often under the umbrella of its signature Corporate Counsel Series.


This year's event sets a new benchmark for attendee interaction: the program blends favorites from conferences past-such as the Tertulia round table discussions-with exciting new technology allowing real-time electronic voting and debate on the most pressing issues facing international arbitration today. Moreover, attendees this year will be invited to submit papers relevant to the discussions and topics in the conference.


The annual ICDR conference always attracts a world-class faculty and is attended by an equally renowned group of experts.


The conference will be simultaneously translated into Spanish.


The ICDR is accepting submissions of papers relevant to the discussions and topics in the conference. Send queries to Steve Andersen at
