OdrXML Technical Committee
Minutes of Initial Teleconference
5 December 2002

The OdrXML Technical Committee held its first conference call on December 5,
2002 from 5:00 to 6:30 EST using web conferencing software to the review the
charter during the call.  After introductions, (see, attendee list below)
the group reviewed and affirmed the goals set forth in the charter.

A key and recurring point of discussion was about keeping an even balance
between ODR for eCommerce and traditional ADR that is in transition to web
Glossary:  We discussed and agreed to utilize the term "Neutrals" to
categorize arbitrators, mediators and other ADR providers generally.

Statement of Work
1) Identify Stakeholders: There was consensus that the first order of
business is to identify stakeholders in the development of OdrXML standards.
The stakeholders should include neutrals and neutral organizations, ODR
providers, and referring entities such as courts or corporations that might
utilize ODR providers and would also wish to monitor progress and closure of
referred matters

2) Functional Requirements: The next task discussed was development of high
level, functional requirements for the different phases and aspects of
online dispute activity.  We discussed building on the work of eContracts,
Court Filing, ebXML and other standards already adopted by OASIS and related

3) Technical Specifications: The group discussed using the ODR schema
developed by the EU Joint Research Centre.  The general conclusion was that
this may have been developed independently of other standards activities,
particularly the work of LegalXML, and that we needed see if the concepts,
data model and data dictionary can be harmonized with other work.

There was general approval of utilizing the data dictionary, object
repository and data model developed by the Integrated Justice Technical
Committee developed at Georgia Technical Research Institute.  We need to
determine how much can used and to what extent we need to supplement this
work with specialized tags, roles and attributes unique to ODR, as well as
work process elements such as BPML (Business Process XML) under development
by Computer Sciences Corporation, as noted in a pre-meeting eMail by Debi
Miller-Moore, Co-Chair.

4) Gather Resources: The final undertaking was to collect links, citations
and resources about ODR on the TC's web site.  OASIS is in the process of
switching it web site management and document repository to new vendors.  We
agreed nevertheless to conduct and eMail exchange to identify resources,
criteria and a process to collect them.
To wrap up this discussion, we also agreed to use the eMail list to identify
stakeholders, develop functional requirements, discuss data models, compare
existing standards to OdrXML needs, and gather resource material and links
for the Technical Committee group page on OASIS.

Future Meetings
The group reviewed potential meetings of OdrXML during the ABA Mid Year
Meeting in Seattle during February 2003 and at the Annual meeting in San
Francisco in August.  It was noted that the Dispute Resolution Section is
holding a multi-day educational conference with ODR seminars at their
conference in San Antonio from March 20-22.  The specific ODR courses are
noted at the end of these minutes.
[In subsequent discussions and a poll we concluded the DR section meeting in
March was a more promising forum for a face to face meeting.]

Ethan Katsch also proposed consideration of the UN ODR Forum on June 30,
2003 in Geneva, which might be an excellent forum to have a dialogue with
OdrXML folks from around the world.

Note on Attendance
We held the meeting via a web conference and teleconference.  We reserved a
bridge based on the number of RSVP's.  Gratefully, we had more last minute
attendees.  Bad news, we had limited Telecon seats and several of our key
players were not able to attend so I was a bit overwhelmed with running the
meeting, setting up the web conference, fielding last minute eMail and
taking roll.  All this caused confusion about who was there.  If we left you
off the attendee list or the list of people who wanted to attend, please
send a private eMail to jik@jkeane.com to correct this.

INet Legal Network, a provider of online seminars for Continuing Legal
Education provided the WebEx software facilities.
