30 May - 1 June 2012
Renaissance Hotel, Manchester, United Kingdom
Held at the EPO, PATLIB2011 was "a learning event" focused essentially on patent and IP issues.
PATLIB2012 is completely different: it is YOUR networking event. You told us what you wanted to hear at the conference. The programme committee has worked hard to draft a "call for abstracts" to offer you a programme which addresses the issues you face in your daily work: delivering services beyond patent information, acquiring the right tools, running a PATLIB centre successfully.
At PATLIB2012, you will hear mainly speakers from PATLIB centres who will share their best practices and experience with you. The way you work probably differs from the other PATLIB centres in your own country but may be similar to PATLIB centres in other countries, or perhaps you are part of a similar organisation or are facing the same issues.
Meet your counterparts at PATLIB2012 and make the most of the event to learn from one another either during the presentations, discussion rounds or social events. We look forward to welcoming you to Manchester!
The Twitter hashtag for the conference is #patlib.
