The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) will host the America Invents Act (AIA) Second Anniversary Forum on Monday, September 16, 2013, from 1-5 pm ET at the USPTO headquarters in Alexandria, Virginia. A live webcast will be available.

USPTO patent experts and administrative patent judges will discuss recent updates, trends in filings, how to avoid pitfalls, progress on improving patent quality, and options for application processing, including preissuance submissions, supplemental examination, and micro-entity discount.

A panel discussion with the patent judges from the Patent Trial and Appeal Board will cover post-grant review, inter partes review, and covered business method review.

To get a good seat, arrive early. The forum is free with seating on a first-come, first-served basis.
