Online Services User Day in Zürich

Online services user day poster

Registration is closed. Registration is no longer possible.

Get an update on recent and future developments in the EPO's Online Services at the second User Day of 2015.

The programme of the next User Day, which takes places in Zürich on 22 and 23 October, features presentations on the new generation of EPO Online Services and numerous practical PC workshops on both new online filing (CMS) and our established online filing software.

Since the launch of web-based online filing (CMS) last year, the group of users has grown rapidly. There will be plenty of time to share experiences with other users, so don't miss this opportunity and sign up for one of the sessions!

The workshops on our established online filing software are targeted primarily at users who are already familiar with it. They include modules on opposition and appeal procedures as well as electronic filing of PCT applications.

The two online filing options will be covered in separate workshops, so please make sure you pick the one you want when you register for the event.

You can find an overview of the differences between the two options in this comparison table.

In the PCT workshop we will present a new EPO service enabling you to pay all PCT fees by automatic debiting from your EPO deposit account.  

Several technical workshops are also part of the programme, and aimed at technical staff responsible for setting up the EPO online filing software in their company or interested in the technical aspects of online filing installation, configuration, system administration and the patent management system gateway.

On both days, a number of seminars will be held without PCs. Topics include

  • Online services available via the Administration function - Mailbox, My Files and Online Fee Payment.
  • Legal/formal requirements in the EP procedure and what they mean for online filing, with a closer look at the new generation of EPO online services, including web-form filing.
