Breakout Session 1
Patents Facilitate Transforming and Upgrading of Real Economy

Room 309

2017 is the first year for revitalization of real economy in China. On one hand, innovation, which is embodied in management, service and marketing models other than technology and products, is essential driving force for the growth of real economy. Internet, digitalization and sharing economy makes the innovation of real economy more diversified. On the other hand, intelligent manufacturing is the main sector that leads the growth of real economy. The convergence of new technologies including AI, IoT, 3D printing, 5G telecommunication with traditional industries is accelerated. Correspondently, the M&A, outsourcing of R&D, IP licensing is more common during the corporate operation. Therefore, the infringement risk is raised, which is caused by the diversified and complicated innovation system. This session is composed of three parts. Part 1 will bring together 4-5 senior executives from operating companies to have a dialogue on the innovative accomplishment, difficulties and the strategic position of IP on the way of business transforming and upgrading. Part 2 will be unfolded around developing internal patent strategy and smartly introducing external IP to keep competitiveness. Part 3 will bring together the in-house counsels from companies specialized in AI, IoT, driverless car and 3D printing to share their insight on IP.

Breakout Session 2
Evolving Global Patent Monetization Market

Room 311

It is patent licensing that dominates the global patent monetization market, which is even clearer in the telecommunication industries. As the patent litigation tends to last for long and end with lose-lose, the corporations prefers to negotiate on patent licensing. In order to adapt to the technology revolution and convergence, some rules of patent licensing is changing, with new models produced. Recently, the patent transaction went dull. The big transaction seldom was seen and the overall transaction plunged by large scale. In 2016, operating corporation firstly surpassed NPE and became the biggest buyer. The patent brokers try their best to make the deal done between the sellers and buyers. When the venture meets IP, what chemistry will be induced? The means of patent financing varies with different market environment, leaving us both experiences and lessons. The U.S., Europe and China markets are characterized by different jurisdiction, policy and economic growth. But all of them have their own difficulties to solve. The session is composed of three parts, introducing the updates of IP transaction, licensing and financing in the above three markets.

IP Protection in China

Room 310

With the further development of economic globalization and international trade, the protection status of IPR in a country has been seriously taken into account by enterprises as the new entrants of the market. In recent years, the intellectual property protection in China has attracted worldwide attention. In early 2017, the Nanjing, Suzhou, Chengdu, Wuhan IP Courts were successively established, following Beijing, Shanghai and Guangdong. With the increase in punitive damages and the issuance of temporary injunctions, China is gradually becoming a top forum favored by patent litigators. Under the "double track" system led by judicial protection for IPRs, the exploration of administrative protection in China has never ceased. Changzhou and Foshan took the lead in setting up Intellectual Property Protection Centers in China, to achieve coordinated synthesis of rapid right validation, rapid rights enforcement, quick examination and granting. Facing the patent infringement, which way should the patent owner choose to appeal to for better effect? What protection will the Intellectual Property Protection Centre provide for the IPR owners? In addition, the reform of IP comprehensive administration is improving, the administrative system integrating patent, trademark and copyright have been applied in some pilot areas. How could the new system effectively improve the efficiency of administrative work and enhance the effectiveness of intellectual property protection?

Breakout Session 4
Utilization of Patent Information in Context of AI

Room 308

Patent information services are inevitably affected by the Fourth Industrial Revolution marked by AI, big data, cloud computing, and IoT. At present, the application of AI is one of the driving forces in patent information market. The competition of AI is not only confined to the internet tycoons, but also involves the patent information service providers. So far, the application of AI to the patent information products has attracted great attention: intelligent semantic retrieval, neural machine translation, intelligent analysis...Driven by AI, the future of patent information service is both promising and worth expecting. However, there is common concern whether with the advent of singularity, patent searcher and analysts will eventually be replaced by AI. This session is composed of two parts. Part 1 provides a platform for exhibitors to introduce their tools of patent information utilization. Part 2 will focus on the future of patent information market in context of A.I.
