The U.S. Patent Office recently began hosting a speaker series called “Patent Quality Chats.” So far, the chats are regularly scheduled to take place on the second Tuesday of each month and participants can join the chats online via webinar. The USPTO is hoping to use the chat series to provide information on patent quality topics to the USPTO’s stakeholders.
The next Patent Quality Chat webinar is on Tuesday, July 14th, 2015. July 14th’s topic is: “Face-to-Face Examiner Interviews: A Demonstration of USPTO Tools” and will be hosted by Director of Technology Center 2400 Timothy Callahan. Mr. Callahan will be demonstrating USPTO tools that patent applicants can use for virtual, face-to-face interviews with Patent Examiners. In addition, Mr. Callahan will discuss ways to enhance the quality of Examiner-Applicant interviews and will take stakeholder comments and suggestions on the interview process. You can view Mr. Callahan’s bio info here.
The chats take place via webinar at 12 p.m-1 p.m. Eastern Standard Time (U.S.). To convert EST to the time in your region, you can check out a time converter, like the one here.
