Attend the event

  • plenary lectures and six workshops from a choice of 26 (EUR 300)
  • plenary lectures, four workshops from a choice of 26 and an at the desk meeting with an examiner (EUR 600)

The at the desk meeting is an unrivalled opportunity to spend an afternoon with an EPO examiner who is expert in a particular field of technology. This will give you a chance to share your views on practical approaches to searching. This selection counts in lieu of two workshop sessions, and incurs the higher registration fee of EUR 600. When selecting this option on the on-line registration tool, it will be necessary to indicate the field of technology which is of interest to you, e.g. by means of an IPC code. Places for at the desk meetings are limited.

This fee covers conference material, catering for the whole event and dinner on the first day for one participant. The fee cannot be split and is not refundable if cancellation is requested less than 28 days before the start of the event.
