HVC 2011 Workshop
Patents and Software Engineering

December 4, 2011

Collocated with 7th Haifa Verification Conference (HVC 2011)

For any software engineers who are not employees of a large company, and even for some who are, it is important to understand patenting. University professors are now expected to patent, both for the value for themselves and the university, but also as recognized publications. Patents are essential for start-ups and independent innovators to protect the IP they created. Even in large corporations patents are now consider one of the criteria for advancements.

The workshop goal is to enhance the understanding of Intellectual Property (IP), with focus on patents, for CS professionals. It will demonstrate how patents could contribute to one’s career and possibly to their bank account as well.
