Later this month are the AIPLA PCT Seminars. You need to sign up if you have not already done so. You can see the details here. It’s Monday and Tuesday, the 20th and 21st, in San Francisco. And it’s Thursday and Friday, the 23rd and 24th, in Alexandria, Virginia.
There are plenty of PCT seminars around, taught by people from USPTO and/or WIPO. The way that the AIPLA PCT Seminars are different is that they have a seasoned faculty that includes speakers from USPTO and WIPO but also includes actual practitioners. These people draw upon diverse backgrounds and provide an interactive discussion that teach things you won’t get anywhere else.
As I look back over many years, I am reminded that some of the best things that have happened to me professionally happened during snack breaks at programs just like this. When you attend this seminar, the attendees around you will be some of the smartest practitioners and filers that you could ever hope to meet. The breakfast breaks, lunch breaks, and snack breaks will be fun opportunities to network with these people.
