London, United Kingdom Thomas Walde, the founder of OGEMID and TDM was both an academic and a practitioner. As such, he had a particular vision for OGEMID and TDM: that the discussion forum and publication should be both practically relevant and academically sound. While TDM should be seen as the leading online journal on international arbitration, mediation and ADR, and international investment law, OGEMID was to be a discussion forum in which all manner of views were welcomed, and where ideas, no matter how controversial, could be tested among experts in the community. In the 10 years since Thomas passed his vision has been expertly taken forwards and further shaped by a committed team of co-moderators, editors and rapporteurs. More information and Registration

Berlin, Germany For the past 7 years, C5's Long Term Gas Supply Contracts: Europe has become the most established event for senior stakeholders to network and develop their knowledge on developments, tips and pitfalls of negotiating and re-negotiating Long Term Gas Supply Contracts. This year, having listened to considerable feedback from the market, and in order to ensure the event continues to be relevant and attractive to delegates, we have taken the decision to update the name of the event to the Gas and LNG Supply Contracts Forum. As the European market has developed, it has seen a significant reduction in the number of long term contracts utilised for gas supply. We hope you will agree that this evolution will help us to keep the event relevant to the needs of the market, whilst maintaining the reputation built up over the history of the event.
