VIAC together with ArbAUT and YAAP is co-organizer of the 1st edition of GAR Live Vienna in association with the Austrian Arbitration Association and the Young Austrian Arbitration Practitioners. The conference will be held on 20 October 2017 in the SkyLounge of the Austrian Federal Economic Chamber. Austria still servesas a gateway to the CEE/SEE region and thus this conference aims at covering topics specifically relevant to this area.

The event is chaired by Alice Fremuth-Wolf, Deputy Secretary General (VIAC), Stefan Riegler (Arb|Aut) and Eliane Fischer (YAAP).

The one-day Event will be comprised of 4 sessions:

  • Session 1: Enforcement around the CEE-region: How to get the client paid?
  • Session 2: The GAR Live symposium – A free ranging question and answer session. Delegates will submit questions in advance on topical themes and will then be invited to present their question on the day, whereupon the moderators and members of the audience are invited to respond, discuss and debate.
  • Session 3: The effect of political change.
  • Session 4: The GAR Live debate - In Oxford Union style, we will hear 4 debaters’ arguments in favour of, or against, a motion.

A panel of 3 judges will then voice opinions on what has been heard, before choosing which side to support and giving reasons for their decisions. The topic of the debate is "This house believes that no arbitrator is ever impartial".

The keynote-speech will be delivered by Professor Schreuer. Speakers and moderators include:

Claudia Annacker
Markus Burgstaller
Milena Djordevic
Ulrike Gantenberg
Christian Konrad
Anna Kozmenko
