Since its inception in 2011, the annual International Conference has been organized by Bogazici University in collaboration with the Turkish Patent and Trademark Office (TURKPATENT), the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), and the European Patent Office (EPO). As of last year, Bogazici University has joined forces with Koç University, Middle East Technical University, and Özyeğin University.

This year's conference theme will be ''Commercialization of Intellectual Property: Step by Step Roadmap''. On Saturday the 19th and Sunday the 20th, two separate specialized training sessions will be offered jointly by experienced practitioners from the Licensing Executive Society International (LESI) and EPO. 

As is suggested by the title of the conference, the overriding aim of both the 2-day conference on Thursday 17th and Friday 18th as well as the trainings that will be held over the weekend is to provide participants and in particular practitioners and professionals with a pragmatic and hands-on approach to effective and viable patenting and commercialization strategies that have been tried and tested. Expert speakers and practitioners will share their practical experience and knowledge on the techniques for conducting patent valuation and the benefits of using scoring technology for managing patent portfolios. Both evaluation as well as valuation reports are sources that provide vital feedback for shaping commercialization strategies. The key components of these reports will be examined in detail with a view to help participants identify their strengths as well as weaknesses and accordingly negotiate their way to a successful commercialization agreement. 

This year's event is a must for anyone who is interested in a guided step by step roadmap for patent commercialization by leading experts in the field
