The Robot Patent Drafting Symposium is organized around Edward de Bono’s Six Thinking Hats. Click on the hats for more details.
The Black Hat is about difficulties, dangers, risks, worries, and such. Critical judgement and logical reasoning is used for identifying the bottlenecks, shortcomings and problems in robot patent drafting.
The White Hat is all about facts and the information that is available at present. We identify missing pieces of information and discuss how to get them.
The Red Hat is about intuitions, emotions, and even about hunches that are not backed by facts. An open discussion without any reasoning. It can even become religious and political.
The Blue Hat is there for making sure that only the right thoughts for the ongoing discussions are talked about. The Blue Hat is worn by the moderators of each session. He organizes the thoughts and make action plans on them, if necessary by shifting them to another session.
The Yellow Hat is about the positive impacts that robot patent drafting will have on the industry and on the users of the patent system, substantiated by facts and logical reasoning.
The Green Hat is all about new ideas and creative thinking to make robot patent drafting better. And also for addressing and for coming up with solutions to Black Hat problems from other sessions.
“Black Hat/Red Hat Discussion”:
There will be 4 speakers who represent Black Hat matters and Red Hat matters. And there will be one moderator who wears the Blue Hat. The moderator makes sure that the main issues are collected and presented to the Green Hat discussion that follows on the same day.
“White Hat Discussion”:
There will be 4 speakers who present White Hat matters. And there will be one moderator who wears the Blue Hat. The moderator makes sure that only factual statements are made and that no religious or political matters are discussed.
“Green Hat/Yellow Hat Discussion”:
There will be 4 speakers who present Green Hat/Yellow Hat Discussion matters. And there will be one moderator who wears the Blue Hat. The moderator makes sure that only positive aspects, visions and ideas are brought up, and only factual Black Hat problems are addressed. There is no room for religious or political matters here.

Virtual Booth & Onsite Booth by Qatent
1. Who should attend the conference?
People who are interested in not missing the train when it comes to automated patent drafting. The convention is a steal: you get 100%-money back vouchers for most of the patent drafting robots that are on the market. Plus you have direct contact with high-ranking insiders and founders of the currently known patent drafting robots. So if you have a serious interest in learning to work with automated patent drafting tools, this conference is a must-attend.
2. How many days is the conference, and what about the FICPI conference afterward?
It is a 2 days event, and the venue is the same as the venue for the FICPI World Congress 2022 that starts on the day after our symposion ends. We do not have an overlap between these two events because many participants of the Robot Patent Drafting Symposium will also participate in the FICPI World Congress 2022.
3. Do Speakers need to pay?
All panelists get a free ticket, of course. However, that free ticket does not come with the same amenities that the paying attendees have. Speaker can still decide to buy an on-site ticket if they want to benefit from all the amenities that we are providing.
4. Why Attending the Conference On-Site in Cannes?
Cannes is a very nice place, so it is not a punishment at all to go there. Being there on-site in Cannes comes with a lot of advantages. You can meet the manufacturers of the currently available patent drafting robots at the conference in Cannes. The on-site seat in Cannes also comes with a pre-dinner upgrade option that is only available to 20 paying on-site members on a first-come-first-serve basis. You only speak with LegalTech people who spend the time and money for coming to Cannes. This is the time for forging alliances in the area of robot patent drafting. The big advantage of this conference is that you are meeting only pre-qualified people who don’t reject but agree that robot patent drafting is the future. After our conference, I can introduce you to the FICPI people who have their World Congress 2022 in Cannes, right after our Robot Patent Drafting Event. I can even sneak you into this conference as an official day-time only attendant, although the FICPI World Congress is sold out already. The on-site seat comes with an additional online seat that you can give to someone else while you are attending the meeting in person. Of course, you need to come to Cannes, in person, if you want to enjoy all the above benefits.
5. What is the difference between onsite and online Pass?
On-site Pass: Not only do you get 2 days on-site access to the limited seat event, but you also get an additional online seat that your colleague can use. Additionally, you get access to an exclusive Backstage Sponsor’s Dinner.
Online Only Pass: You can access the two-day event online through the Zoom meeting platform.
6. Can I use the convention as a marketing event?
Yes, there are online booths for sponsors, manned by their sales teams. If you are a manufacturer of patent drafting software, you can also hand out a voucher for using your software. I am not recommending to hand out discount vouchers, but instead a 100%-money-back voucher. That will make sure that you are only talking with real buyers and not with people that are out for freebies.
7. Is this a serious event for exhibitors?
Yes, I will make the conference known to about 200k people in the area of IP. We have only 30 paying on-site seats in Cannes, plus the speakers. So the majority will have to attend online, for space reasons. Only paying attendees will benefit from all advantages of the event. My guess is that we have about 200 paying attendees (which is also a sign that they have a serious interest in that solution).
8. What are the advantages for attendees of the convention?
All attendees will have a unique selection of conversation partners that come with hands-on experience in the legal tech area, and especially in the automated patent drafting area.
9. I am interested in the symposium, would you mind giving me a little information about it and what we intend to discuss?
We have three afternoon sessions at each one of the two days of this symposium. The sessions are taking place in the afternoon so that online attendees from the USA can take part at a reasonable hour of their day. In each one of the sessions, there will be 4 speakers. Three of these speakers will present their information for about 15 minutes, guided by the Blue Hat moderator, followed by a 30 minutes long discussion that involves the four speakers and the attendees. The speakers are free to decide about what they are talking, provided that the information fits into the hat colors of that speaking session. The Blue Hat moderator makes sure that this is always the case.
10. There are some known manufacturers of Robot Patent Drafting who are not attending the event. Why?
We have invited all the manufacturers of “Robot Patent Drafting” listed in the important information section.
Some of the manufacturers have decided that they would not attend the event because it does not make sense to them. This actually speaks a lot about the manufacturer’s mindset given that this event is only major event in this area anywhere in the world.
We have all the major Robot Patent Drafting tool manufacturers as speakers for the event, as follows:

The World Robot Patent Drafting Symposium is one of the most focused and exclusive events in the IP industry.
You will be meeting a group of delegates that are united in one strong quest – minimizing human input in drafting patent applications while maximizing the value that humans can contribute to drafting these patent applications.
You will be amidst a group of Early Adopters that are eager to cut down their learning curve and to reduce the time that it takes to adopt this new technology in their own patent practice.
Automated Patent Drafting - We will only discuss this. Nothing else. No trademarks. No designs. No copyright. No litigation. Only Robot Patent Drafting.
We hold a meeting for a group of privileged people with one common interest: disrupting the patents industry with automated drafting of patent applications.
This will be a very different hybrid experience. Whether you attend virtually over video or in person, on-site, you have the same experience as an attendee. We have tweaked a video conferencing system to make that possible.
We have a one-of-a-kind event structured around Dr. Edward de Bono's "Six Thinking Hats". We have separate talks and discussions for facts, worries, fears, and visions. So you will not get confused.
We will not record the talks and nothing that has been spoken will see the light of the day. We will compile a Symposium White Paper, but that's it.
We don't just produce hot steam. Your conference tickets include vouchers for using actual online patent drafting robots that are used in the field. So you can try out yourself what you have seen.
Good day, here is Martin Schweiger. I am a patent attorney in Singapore. Welcome to the landing page of the World Robot Patent Drafting Symposium 2022. According to my knowledge, such an event has never been held before.
I have been working on the topic of “automated preparation of patent applications” for several years. Since this year – for the first time – it has become realistic to use this technology to increase throughput speed and quality of patent application preparation. The price for using software to automatically prepare a patent application has fallen to a few hundred Euros per case, and even significantly less for large volumes.
I took this development as an opportunity to host the World Robot Patent Drafting Symposium 2022 via my personal blog “IP Lawyer Tools”.
Our World Robot Patent Drafting Symposium 2022 will bring you up to speed with respect to automated drafting of patent applications, starting from invention disclosures or from patent claims.
Date: September 23-24, 2022
Location: Cannes, France
