eMod Patent Center and Global Dossier Information Session

Please join us at the USPTO Headquarters in Alexandria, VA, or virtually, to learn more about two exciting USPTO efforts, eMod Patent Center and Global Dossier. Information will be provided about both topics, and time will be set aside for questions and answers.

Date: 11/5/2015 (Thursday)
Time: 2 PM – 4 PM {ET}


2:00 – 3:00 PM: eMod/Patent Center

The eMod (eCommerce Modernization) project  is an effort by the USPTO to improve the electronic patent application process by modernizing its eCommerce systems (EFS-Web and Private PAIR). The purpose of this effort is to improve the user experience, enable more efficient system integration, and expand system usefulness. For more information about eMod, please see our website at http://www.uspto.gov/patent/emod.

This session is an opportunity for stakeholders to learn more about the effort. An in-depth presentation will be given, and USPTO project experts will be in attendance to address questions.

3:00 – 4:00 PM:  Global Dossier presentation

Global Dossier will provide services for monitoring and managing related cases filed in multiple international offices through a single portal/user interface. The USPTO-hosted User Interface for Global Dossier will be launched in November 2015, providing all stakeholders access to the full file history in a patent application family filed in participating Offices.
