The conference will feature world-renowned experts on patent information for technology research and planning, for legal organizations, and for overall corporate IP management (technology licensing and related activities). The conference will include many opportunities for discussion and part of Tuesday afternoon will be dedicated to visiting the exhibit hall. Many workshops will also be held in conjunction with this meeting (before and after the technical sessions).

Attendees typically have a professional, scientific, or technical interest in patents and represent a multitude of companies. Previous meetings in Crystal City, Virginia and San Antonio, Texas, drew enthusiastic groups of over 390 and 320 people, respectively, to the three-day technical sessions. Nearly one-fifth of the attendees were international; that is, attendees came from Australia, Austria, Brazil, Canada, China, Denmark, France, Germany, India, Israel, Italy, Japan, Netherlands, the Russian Federation, Singapore, South Korea, Sweden, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom. We expect about 400 attendees in 2010.

Join us as we continue in our third decade of PIUG! We look forward to seeing you in Baltimore, Maryland, USA.
