The EPO Online Services User Day in Bratislava this Year
The EPO Online Services User Day will take place in Bratislava this year. This year´s Online Services User Day is organised by the European Patent Office (EPO) in the co-operation with the Industrial Property Office of SR in October 9-10 in Bratislava Hotel Hilton Double Tree. The event is aimed primarily at patent attorneys and their support staff, IT staff responsible for the technical implementation of online filing.
The event offers participants a chance to attend workshops and various seminars on the patent granting procedure. A new workshop on the EPO opposition and appeal procedures with practise using the Online Filing has been added to the programme for the first time. Another new feature on the programme is a preview of how to file PCT applications using the new EPO case management system (CMS).
In addition to the Online Filing and Online Fee Payment workshops, the programme also includes the module on the latest and improved electronic tools Mailbox and My Files, which allow you to receive communications from the EPO electronically and view your published and unpublished files online in a secure environment. Topics covered during the seminars include a 'PCT update' and 'Examples of best practice with respect to formal requirements'. Don't miss the opportunity to try out the products yourself and find out about the latest developments in the EPO online services. There will be plenty of opportunity to ask EPO experts about technical and procedural matters and share experiences with other users.
