The preliminary program is now up (https://www.piug.org/an17program) and it looks like an exciting program. The workshops are starting to come up (https://www.piug.org/an17workshops). We have Stephen Adams doing a workshop Saturday morning and Dr Nigel S. Clarke will be doing an EPO workshop Saturday afternoon. Both of them are wonderful speakers and it will be worth coming in early to take advantage of these opportunities. The USPTO will be back again this year with workshops on Global Patent Dossier and the CPC. Plus our usual vendors will be doing workshops.
We are thrilled to have 2 Emerald Sponsors this year Search Technology and Evalueserve. Both of them will have workshops on Sunday. The STN Patent Forum will be on Thursday as usual.
Looking forward to seeing everyone in Atlanta.
