On September 4, the USPTO announced plans to host a America Invents Act Forum to answer questions regarding specific provisions of the America Invents Act (AIA) at the USPTO Campus, Madison North Auditorium, 600 Dulany Street, Alexandria, VA from 1 pm - 5 pm ET on September 16, 2013.
The event will be also webcast live through the USPTO website. More information, including directions, webcast login instructions, meeting agenda and RSVP details can be found on the AIA microsite.
The USPTO states "experts from the Patent Business Unit and administrative patent judges from the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) will discuss various provisions of the patent law, focusing on filings made during the past several months with tips for compliance. In particular, the agency will address prioritized examination (aka Track One), preissuance submissions, inventor's oath/declaration, supplemental examination, micro-entity discount, first-inventor-to-file, and the administrative trials. Attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions during each segment."
