The Search Matters conference 2020 aims to deliver workshops and lectures with a special focus on disruptive technologies such as 3D printing and artificial intelligence (AI).
Further topics dealt with by the workshops on offer are:
- Tools such as machine translations, PATENTSCOPE as well as non-patent literature
- Asian patent literature
- Aspects of search at the opposition stage
- Exploration of the search process itself, e.g. finding related patents, forward searching
- Searching in chemistry: Markush formulae and compositions
Additionally, there will be “at-the-desk” sessions in which a limited number of pre-registered participants will have the opportunity to talk to examiners individually and gather first-hand information about their search strategies in specific technical areas.
