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 services.
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 organizations.

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.
