PIUG 2011 Northeast Conference
The PIUG Northeast Conference brings together experts in the area of chemistry/biology, non-chemistry/biology and legal topics relating to patent information. It is an excellent forum to learn and share best practices regarding a specific process in searching and retrieving patent information. Vendors will be available to discuss their expertise and products. The key objective of this five-day meeting is to provide opportunities for learning, networking and professional development.
The Hyatt Regency New Brunswick in New Brunswick, NJ, is 2 blocks from the NJ Transit train station and NJ Transit bus line. See the travel page for more information on getting to the conference site.
