Search Matters 2020 poster Training event for patent search professionals

11-13 May 2020
The Hague, Netherlands

This year's Search Matters conference aims to deliver workshops and lectures with a special focus on disruptive technologies such as 3D printing and AI.

Meet our examiners to gain an insight into how they tackle the complex task of searching the ever expanding prior art.

Further topics dealt with by the workshops on offer are:

  • Tools such as machine translations, PATENTSCOPE as well as non-patent literature
  • Asian patent literature 
  • Aspects of search at the opposition stage
  • Exploration of the search process itself, e.g. finding related patents, forward searching
  • Searching in chemistry: Markush formulae and compositions

Additionally, during our popular “at-the-desk” sessions a limited number of pre-registered participants will have the opportunity to talk to examiners individually and gather first-hand information about their search strategies in specific technical areas.

Who should attend

Patent search professionals from business, academia and IP firms.
