The roundtable is designed to help the USPTO better understand the needs of those using its services and to offer insights into the USPTO operations.  

Topics include:

  • Recent developments at the USPTO. (e.g., performance and quality results)
  • Customer suggestions for improvements.
  • Practice tips.

This unique opportunity to get to know the USPTO should not be missed.

To preserve the desired interactive format at each roundtable, attendance is limited to the first 25 people to register. Upon reaching capacity, a waiting list will be created. If a seat becomes available, you will be contacted immediately. Registrants are also invited to send no more than two questions in advance to ensure there is sufficient time to address them during the roundtable. Please send your questions to Craig Morris at by April 4.
