Boards of appeal and key decisions 2015
Conference for patent law professionals
26-27 November 2015
European Patent Office, Munich
Now in its fifth year, the "Boards of appeal and key decisions" conference gives a unique insight into the EPO's case law practice. Many hundreds of participants have already made use of the opportunity to ask questions, raise concerns and define their position on specific issues.
This year's conference, which will feature chairmen of the boards of appeal, legally and technically qualified members and the chairman of the Enlarged Board of Appeal, will focus on topics such as clarity, the problem-solution approach and recent "G" cases. It will also look at the appeal systems of the IP5 offices.
The programme includes sessions on procedural matters as well as mock oral proceedings before a board of appeal.
This event is primarily aimed at patent attorneys, judges and national patent office staff with a minimum of three to four years' experience in the field of patents.
