Registration is now open for the complimentary 2019 Global IP Conference with Advanced PCT Training. During the two-day session, our speakers will cover a variety of topics including emerging technologies, med devices, strategies for developing and protecting your IP, understanding foreign prosecution requirements, and advanced PCT training.

April 3 (Day 1): To kick off the conference, we’ll bring together EPO examiners, attorneys, legal professionals, and patent owners to discuss the latest IP developments in today’s rapidly changing global environment. Three concurrent tracks will explore these changes, including insights relating to emerging technologies, European patent practices, and IP portfolio development for early stage companies with a focus on medical device technologies. A networking reception with Santa Clara University School of Law will follow on-site at the Marriott.

April 4 (Day 2): Carl Oppedahl, WIPO PCT consultant, will teach an all-day class on the Patent Cooperation Treaty.  Topics will include an overview of the PCT process, best practices for filing and managing PCT applications, and strategic decisions for making best use of the PCT depending on a particular applicant's needs.  New topics since last year's advanced PCT training will include a discussion of the five types of PCT Declarations, and best use of the DAS system. 

* CLE credit will be applied for in California and Minnesota for both days.
