Chapter Summary

Information technology (IT) has been around for longer than one normally thinks. When we refer to IT, we tend to mean the advent of the personal computer (PC) and-more importantly-computer networks in the early eighties when desktop PC's started to invade offices and later homes. One might wonder why using IT in arbitration should be a topic at all. One answer could be that IT poses new procedural problems. Secondly, one could state that IT offers potential for increasing the efficiency of the proceedings and may change the way they are conducted. This chapter provides the author's opinion as to where we stand in regard to using IT in international arbitral proceedings and how actual use could be improved. This will be followed by an attempt to look at the more distant future.

Keywords: efficiency; information technology (IT); international arbitration; proceedings
