PIUG wiki members regularly maintain the Patent Information Meetings, Conferences, and Seminars wiki page.
Here's another idea to find good meetings: search for terms such as patent among LinkedIn Events, available after login from the More...Events item in the top menubar.
Help generate buzz by going to these PIUG 2010 LinkedIn events pages and indicate your anticipated attendance or interest:
- PIUG 2010 Boston Biotechnology Meeting. "Managing Biosequences: Retrieval to Results"
- PIUG 2010 Annual Conference. "Moving Targets: Current & Future Best Practices and Opportunities for Patent Information Professionals"
Other patent meetings currently registered as LinkedIn events:
- 1st International Workshop on Advances in Patent Information Retrieval (AsPIRe'10)
- IRF Symposium 2010
- ICIC 2010
On a related matter, membership in the PIUG LinkedIn group is available to all current PIUG members. Request to join the LinkedIn group if you are a paid-up PIUG member. Please be sure to renew with PIUG for 2010 to stay in the PIUG LinkedIn group. Use the Join PIUG link in the top blue menubar to join or renew your PIUG membership.
