WASHINGTON - The US Department of Commerce’s United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) today announced in a press release that it will host an America Invents Act (AIA) Second Anniversary Forum on Monday, September 16, 2013, at the USPTO headquarters in Alexandria, Virginia. The public meeting will serve as an opportunity to bring stakeholders together with USPTO subject matter experts to address specific AIA provisions.

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.

The event will also be webcast live through the USPTO website.
