The workshop is open to the public and will be held in the Madison Auditorium on the USPTO campus in Alexandria, VA.
The full day's activities will be webcast live at https://livestream.com/uspto/events/7673138 and we will take questions from the remote audience. We do strongly encourage in-person atttendance, for participation in the breakout session.
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.
