I want to patent an algorithm in India. I have done enough prior art and I am sure that no such algorithm exists till date.
The problem is I have also written a research paper for the same and submitted in a reputed conference. The paper is yet to be accepted and published. After doing some research on Internet I came to know that for getting a patent it must not be in the public domain or published anywhere.
So, if I file a provisional patent application before the paper (if selected) gets published then are there any chances of patent denial. Is that so that the patent must be granted (which takes around 3 to 4 years long) before it can be published or one can publish it after filing a provisional patent application?
Also I came to know that even after it gets published in journal one gets a grace period of 12 months to file a patent, here (Question 10). I really don't have much idea about Section 29-34 as mentioned in the link hence would like to know that in what way it can affect me.
