The 2019 event will be held in Munich, Germany on 6-8 May 2019 with the participation of respected speakers in IP business and the EPO examiners.
This year's programme not only covers practical information on patent search strategies through a number of lectures and workshops, but also addresses different eye-catching subjects such as:
the impact of AI and Blockchain on search,
Asian prior art,
free search tools such as Espacenet and Patstat, and
complexity of searching in the automotive, ICT and chemistry fields.
On the first day of the event, the participants will also be able to ask their questions to the individual examiners concerning their specific technical fields during the “at-the-desk” sessions.
The fee for attendance at lectures and workshops on 7-8 May is 300 EUR.
An additional 300 EUR is required for pre-registration to the "at-the-desk sessions" for posing specific questions to the EPO examiners on 6 May 2019 (optional).
