The Universidad del Norte Santo Tomás de Aquino (UNSTA) joined ODR Latinoamerica to organize the face-to-face and Virtual Congress ODR Expo Tech NOA Edition, being this the first regional venue of this prestigious event.
UNSTA has been, for more than ten years, a recognized institution in the training of professional mediators in the province of Tucumán and the NOA region (Jujuy, Catamarca, San Luis, La Rioja, Tucumán y Santiago del Estero provinces). The philosophy of mediation and the appropriate resolution of conflicts are part of the vision of the university, and correspond to concrete actions and values necessary for the construction of more peaceful societies.
ODR Latinoamerica is a prestigious academic and research space in the articulation of new technologies and conflict resolution with a long history in the promotion of ODR, and the continuous training courses for the different conflict operators in the public and private spheres.
Together, we intend to take this experience of transmitting knowledge and practices to different parts of the planet, for which we have developed a program that combines face-to-face and virtual sessions in a synchronous and asynchronous format, in which renowned local and international specialists will participate.
Convinced that only through joint work, collaborative learning and research within the field of conflict resolution with the use of technological means, we will be able to improve the mechanisms available so that society has a diversified system for the appropriate care of each conflict, according to its own nature. This is why we invite you to join us in this great event. Registration is for free (without certification in PDF, which is a separate paid service we offer) https://expotechnoa.eventbrite.com.ar
It is for these reasons that, inspired by the need to continue promoting the growth of different conflict resolution methodologies mediated by the use of I&CT, and hoping to be able to share local developments with the experiences of prestigious professionals from different parts of the world, that we proudly organized this event. Hope you can join us!

ODR Ethics and Standards: What Do They Mean to Our Practices? Thursday, June 9, 2022 @ 11am-12:30pm EST https://umass-amherst.zoom.us/j/98085295001
This international panel is moderated by Leah Wing & Daniel Rainey and jointly sponsored by The National Center for Technology and Dispute Resolution & The International Council for Online Dispute Resolution. The National Center for Technology and Dispute Resolution, birthplace of ODR, issued a first set of ODR Standards that it has revised in 2022 jointly with the International Council for Online Dispute Resolution (ICODR). The panel includes NCDTR Fellows and ICODR members Mirèze Philippe, Morenike Obi-Farinde, Ana Maria Maia Gonçalves, and Mohamed S. Abdel Wahab. We will discuss the relevance and implications for employing ODR ethical standards in light of the new risks that ODR raises and ways it can compound on-going ethical concerns for ADR and courts (e.g.: data security, confidentiality, power imbalances, and AI-enhanced and repeat player biases). Panelists will explore the role of ODR standards in the ethical and accountable delivery of ODR across a wide spectrum of jurisdictions, sectors, and types of practice. This event will be recorded and posted in our NCTDR Webinar Archive.
This event celebrates the 2022 edition of The Future of the Professions: How Technology Will Transform the Work of Human Experts by Richard Susskind and Daniel Susskind (OUP 2022).

He is President of the Society for Computers and Law, Chair of the Advisory Board of the Oxford Internet Institute, and, since 1998, has been Technology Adviser to the Lord Chief Justice of England and Wales. He will discuss the impact technology will have on the legal field and other professions in his conversation with Ethan Katsh, the father of ODR and founder of the National Center for Technology and Dispute Resolution. This event will be recorded and posted in our NCTDR Webinar Archive.
