WIPO is holding a day of discussions for UK patent practitioners on 13 October - next Thursday. At least it will if enough people sign up for it. The IPKat publicised it this morning, and I'm doing my bit too - having signed up to it myself. Details from http://www.ipo.gov.uk/whyuse/events/events-calendar/events-britishday.htm. It's at teh UK IPO's London place in Bloomsbury Street.
