The European Patent Office will hold a seminar on Patenting Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) immediately after the Chartered Institute of Patent Attorneys (CIPA) 2018 Annual Congress.
The event will focus on patentability issues and the major aspects of filing and prosecuting ICT-related patent applications at the EPO. Three break-out workshops will be offered related to the drafting of European applications in the respective areas of Business Methods, examination of cloud computing at the EPO: claims for the Cloud as well as Human Computer Interaction (HCI) and Graphic User Interface (GUI). An EPO expert and a European patent attorney will chair each workshop which will cover information both on the legal framework and on the claim drafting aspects.
Plenary sessions will address the patenting of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and of Computer Implemented Inventions and will offer an update on the latest developments at the EPO in areas including quality, timeliness and search of Asian documentation.
This high-level event is organised in close co-operation with the Chartered Institute of Patent Attorneys (CIPA).
If you are a patent attorney and particularly if you work in the field of ICT, then you should consider attending this event.
