Introduction

The first EPO Online Services User Day of 2015 will be held in Munich on 18 and 19 March.

Our user days are aimed primarily at patent attorneys, support staff and IT staff responsible for the technical implementation of online filing.

Once again, the event offers participants a combination of hands-on workshops and seminars on the patent granting procedure.

Hands-on workshops

  • Online filing software 

Workshops on our established online filing software are offered for advanced users as well as for staff responsible for installing it. They include a module on opposition and appeal procedures.

  • New online filing (CMS) application 

We are also running workshops on the new web-based online filing application which was launched in October last year.

The two online filing options will be covered in separate workshops, so please make sure you pick the one you want when you register for the event. 

You can find an overview of the differences between the two options in this comparison table.

Seminars

  • Online services available via the Administration function - Mailbox, My Files and Online Fee Payment.
  • EPC vs PCT - a comparison of the formal requirements for applications filed under the two systems, as well as related EPO practice.
  • Legal/formal requirements in the EP procedure and what they mean for online filing, with a closer look at the new generation of EPO online services, including web-form filing

We recommend that you register as soon as possible, as recent user days have been fully booked.  In particular, places for the hands-on workshops are limited and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. The deadline for registration is

1 March 2015.
