PTAB/TTAB Event at the University of Minnesota Law School, and Some Other Upcoming Events

This isn't directly related to patent remedies as such, but I suspect that many readers of this blog in the Twin Cities area may be interested.  The University of Minnesota's Corporate Institute is presenting a USPTO PTAB/TTAB event at the University of Minnesota Law School on Wednesday, September 27, from 12:30-5:00.  The event will feature live PTAB trial proceedings and live TTAB appeal and opposition proceedings, as well as educational sessions featuring judges who will share tips for successful advocacy and practitioners who will discuss litigation strategies.  Here is a link to the website, and here is a link to the Corporate Institute's flyer advertising the event.

Also of possible interest to local readers is the Midwest IP Institute, which takes place in Minneapolis September 28-29.  From the institute's webpage:
Headlining the 2017 Institute are CAFC Judge Jimmie Reyna, TTAB Chief Judge Gerard Rogers, USPTO Solicitor Nate Kelley, and Midwest Regional USPTO Director Dr. Christal Sheppard. With these headliners, IP experts from Asia, Europe, Canada, Australia, California, Texas, New Jersey, Massachusetts and across the Midwest will join a talented local faculty of experts to share real-world advice and practice tips for tackling complex legal and business issues.
There will be sessions on, among other things, managing patent infringement risk post-Halo and best practices relating to design patents after Apple v. Samsung.  Here is a link to the website.

I should also mention, for readers in the D.C. area, that the National Press Club will be hosting a panel titled "Next Up In Apple/Samsung Smartphone Wars: Design Patent Remedies Following The SCOTUS Decision,” on Wednesday, Sept. 13, from 9-10:30 a.m.  Details can be found on Professor Rebecca Tushnet's 43(B)log.
