Join Silicon Valley USPTO PTAB judges for an interactive program focused on tips and strategies for filing and managing ex parte appeals and AIA trials. Start the afternoon with an optional tour of the new Silicon Valley office led by the judges from 12:30 p.m. to 1 p.m. PT. The program will start at 1:00 p.m. with introductions and an overview of PTAB operations and brief State of the Board. Attendees will then choose to participate in two of four break-out sessions facilitated by the judges: (1) AIA trials; (2) ex parte appeals; (3) successful briefing; and (4) oral advocacy skills.
The event is free and open to the public, but please register here by February 9, 2016.
