Now in its seventh year, the "Boards of Appeal and key decisions" conference provides a unique insight into the EPO's case law practice. More than 1200 participants have already made use of the opportunity to ask questions, raise concerns and define their position on specific issues.
This year's conference featuring chairmen of the Boards of Appeal as well as legally and technically qualified members will focus on topics such as the right to be heard, new developments in procedural and substantive matters, and priority.
The programme includes mock trial proceedings before a board of appeal.
