Symposium: The Expert in the International Adjudicative Process

On April 27-28, 2017, the Max Planck Institute Luxembourg for International, European and Regulatory Procedural Law will host a symposium on "The Expert in the International Adjudicative Process." The program is here. Here's the idea:
The symposium intends to provide a platform for the exchange of ideas on a topic of considerable debate and divergent views. It will highlight and confront, among other issues, the appointment of experts, their roles and obligations, the modes of using experts within the framework of the proceedings, and the means of assessing expert evidence available to the judge. The interaction of highly experienced and specialised participants will provide for an in-depth practical and theoretical analysis of the topic, addressing current and emerging trends in relation to expert involvement in international dispute, as well as the scope for reform in this field.
