The workshops will be offered in eight successive sessions. During each workshop session several workshops will be running in parallel.
There will be no fixed and individual workshop allocation in order to give participants the freedom to decide at the event itself which workshops they wish to attend subject to seat availability in the room.
When registering online for the event, you will be asked to indicate which workshops you preferrably would like to attend. Please select eight workshops you are interested in (non-binding choice). Your indication helps the organisers to schedule the workshops in line with the participants' demand.
Before registering please consult the workshop abstracts to learn more about the different topics and the content of the 21 workshops.
You can download the PowerPoint presentations of the different workshops. Please note that there are no slides for WS18 (“Efficient use of attorney resources”) and that there are two versions for WS20 (“Technical standards and substantive issues of patent examination”), the first version was presented on 14 June by Leo Giannotti, while John Michael Walker Pina gave the workshop on 15 June, displaying the second version.
