We have several highlights this year.  Saturday, there are 2 training courses: Introduction to Patent Searching and Patent Searching Fundamentals.  Sunday has vendor workshops and the annual business meeting.  Monday has a session on design searching, the keynote by Laura Peters, Deputy Director of the USPTO, a workshop by the USPTO and EPO on the future of the CPC, and other great talks.  Tuesday has more talks, open exhibit time, a panel discussion on using registers, and a workshop from the EPO on patent insight reports.  Wednesday has talks on patent landscapes and then workshops in the afternoon on CPC indexing, AI for patent searching and WIPO standards.  Thursday is the STN Patent Forum.  More information and links for registration can be found here.  

There are more educational activities than ever before plus plenty of opportunities for networking with your colleagues.  Also, there will be plenty of opportunities to interact with all of our sponsors and exhibitors.  Thank you very much to all of them.
