2017 PatentsView Workshop on Engaging User Communities

The US Patent and Trademark Office’s Chief Economist has open  invitations to the 2017 PatentsView Workshop on Engaging User Communities.

The workshop is open to the public and will be held on Friday October 6, from 8:30am – 12:30pm on the USPTO campus in Alexandria, VA.

USPTO will officially launch at the workshop the PatentsView Community Site, updated data visualization with export functionality, and new data fields that can be accessed across PatentsView tools.  This year’s updates are based on feedback gathered by the user community at the 2016 PatentsView workshop.  The new Community Site includes a moderated forum for user inquiries and a Data in Action page for sharing analyses, visualizations, and publications. 

The goals of the workshop are:

(1) to launch the new Community Site and Data Visualization features;

(2) to present newly parsed and available patent data fields; and

(3) to gather feedback from patent data and analytics user communities in order to set priorities for future PatentsView open data products.

Agenda buildup is in progress and it will be fully delivered in the coming weeks.
