                                                      December 30th, 1997.

                                                 Publisher Michael Chapman.


 The last year, 1997, has been a busy one for European Arbitration. The editorial team has moved to new, larger offices. The computing system has been upgraded (we started off on a laptop for issue 1 !). Telecommunications have been upgraded to ISDN lines. A UNIX operating system has been installed for some aspects of the e-mail handling. And ... and the learning curves have intermeshed, but not unpleasantly so.
 Our distribution has not been perfect. We are the guests of a partially academic network, and thus have never expected the speed of fault repair that occurs on multi-national, commercial Internet service providers. The increasing sophistication of our own Site, does though mean that 1998 should see an end to such problems.
 This short issue is thus to thank you all for bearing with the development strains of 1997, and to promise you increasing and diversifying services in 1998, but not least to wish you and your loved ones a very peaceful winter break before a Joyous New Year.



 All contributions to this DIARY are welcome. It is both for the individual arbitrator and for those who plan meetings.
 Generally, listed meetings will be at least half-day and usually full day events. Evening meetings are likely to be only of local interest.
 The emphasis is European: However to help in scheduling, major world events are listed.
