European patent information will play a very important role at this year's Patent Information Expo (PATINEX), an annual IP conference organised by the Korean Patent Office (KIPO) and the Korea Institute of Patent Information (KIPI). The event will take place on 6 and 7 September 2012 in Seoul at the International Convention Center of the Korean Federation of Science and Technology Society.
Under the topic "The ins and outs of European IP information", the first day of the conference will turn the spotlight on a variety of intellectual property topics from Europe while the second day will focus on "emerging IT trends and utilisation of IP information".
The PATINEX consists of various sessions, workshops and an exhibition and provides a good opportunity to meet major players in patent information from Korea and beyond. Registration is possible until 31 August 2012. Any further information about the conference and the registration procedure is available on the conference's website.
