This year's "East meets West" will again provide a platform for in-depth one-on-one contacts between providers of Asian patent data and users. On Friday, 11 April 2014 at 8.30-10.30 hrs, patent information companies from Asian and Western countries will introduce their services in a poster session and workshops. In an informal atmosphere, users can take this opportunity to talk with exhibitors, visit workshops of their choice or exchange ideas with other participants over a cup of coffee.
This is your chance for direct interaction with users of Asian patent data. The poster presentation is free of charge. Only Asia-related content please!
Once you have registered, you will be asked to submit:
The EPO will provide:
Please note that due to the size and general set-up of this session, we will not be able to allow individual roll-ups/banners or brochure display stands.
Technical equipment (power supply for laptops, WLAN) will be available in the hotel.
Presentation fee EUR 180
In addition to the poster session, this will be an opportunity for exhibitors to provide a more in-depth overview of their range of Asia-related patent information services, or to focus on one product in particular.
The workshop should include practical elements, such as (live) demonstrations of search functionalities or case studies. Database providers could also consider to give free trial access to those users who bring their own laptops.
Speaking time will be 25 minutes.
Exhibitors will be asked to submit a separate abstract (max. 500 characters) for the workshop. Please note that the number of workshops is limited, so we will select abstracts according to their level of interest and relevance for Asian patent information users.
