ICCA presents 2020 Congress preliminary programme and issues call for speakers


ICCA is proud to present the preliminary programme for the 2020 ICCA Congress in Edinburgh, and to invite expressions of interest to speak at the event.


The theme for the 2020 ICCA Congress is "Arbitration's Age of Enlightenment?". Under this theme, a wide range of topics relevant to international commercial and investment arbitration will be covered. From a modern critique of classic international arbitration cases, to a deep consideration of ISDS reform and a thorough survey of emerging regional themes, the programme invites speakers and delegates to engage with new developments, but also to look with new eyes at the practices of arbitration that may be taken for granted.

The Programme Committee for the 2020 Congress in Edinburgh invites all ICCA members and other individuals to express their interest in participating as speakers at the Congress. In particular, the Programme Committee looks forward to receiving proposals from individuals who were not speakers at either of the last two ICCA Congresses, and from individuals outside the field of arbitration who have a fresh perspective to offer on the topics under discussion at the 2020 Congress.


Expressions of interest should be sent to the Co-chairs of the Programme Committee at Speaker2020@arbitration-icca.org, using the “Expressions of Interest” form available for download here. Expressions of interest should be sent as early as possible, and no later than 7 June 2019. All expressions of interest will be considered by the Programme Committee.


Speakers will be required to submit publishable papers, complying with ICCA guidelines on length and style, eight weeks before the Congress.


Registration for the Congress is now open. Visit the Host Organization’s dedicated website: icca2020.scot for more information.
