Topics 
- Does dispute value really serve as a reliable indicator of the complexity and difficulty of a case?
- How can Gangnam principle be applied during the stages of:

*Document discovery
*Adducing expert evidence (technical, economic and foreign law)
*CMC and hearings
*Witness statement taking and witness examination
*Deliberations  

- Can high value cases sometimes be suitable for a “documents-only” track?

- What is the right balance between oral advocacy and written advocacy and how to avoid redundancy between the two?

- Can the process of preparing submissions and witness statements become more efficient than now? 

- Can more diversity among arbitrators and lead counsels help resolve the problems of time, cost and mistrust of the system? If so, how to widen the entrance for more people to “break-in?”
