Registration is open for The Sedona Conference WG9 and WG10 Joint Annual Meeting 2024 at The Hotel Haya in Tampa, Florida, on Tuesday - Wednesday, September 24 - 25, 2024. A welcome reception will be held on the evening of Monday, September 23, from 5:30 - 7:30 pm.

The primary focus of this Meeting will be for our current WGs 9 and 10 drafting teams to lead a document-based dialogue to obtain member comment and advance the following draft commentaries and project charters toward publication for public comment:

  • The Evolving Relationship Between Federal Courts and Administrative Agencies
  • Case Management of Patent Damages and Remedies Issues
  • SEP/FRAND Global Issues
  • Cross-Border Discovery in U.S. Patent and Trade Secrets Cases (Stage 3)
  • Bases and rationales for injunctive relief across jurisdictions
  • The Proper Role of the Prosecution History in Patent Litigation

We will highlight the Commentaries we have published since our last Annual Meeting in Portland in May 2023 and we will engage in dialogue with the Working Group membership about what topics we should pursue via brainstorming groups and drafting teams over the next year. To close the Meeting, we will hear from a Judicial Roundtable, comprised of some of our Judicial Advisors who have graciously and genrously supported Sedona's working group efforts to date.

Please help us ensure that each of our forthcoming publications reflect the consensus, non-partisan approach of The Sedona Conference, and join the dialogue!

To attend the Meeting, you need to be a current member of The Sedona Conference Working Group Series (WGS). WGS members are eligible to take part in the activities of all Working Groups, inlcuding WG9 and WG10.

We hope you can join us in September in Tampa!
