As part of the process of policy making for implementation of the America Invents Act (AIA), the USPTO will be hosting a series of sessions for gathering public comment on proposed implementation and policies for implementing the AIA changes signed into law by Congress. This roadshow will take place this spring across the U.S. to give independent inventors the opportunity to meet with USPTO officials and comment. It begins in Alexandria, VA (Feb. 17), continues through the US.: Silicon Valley (Feb. 24), Salt Lake City (Feb. 27), Dallas (Feb. 29), Fort Lauderdale (Mar. 2), Boston (Mar. 5) and Chicago (Mar. 7).
