Top 10s from the PIUG 2015 Annual Conference: Product Updates and Presentations

The Patent Information User Group (PIUG) 2015 Annual Conference was held this year at the Westin Lombard Yorktown Center in Lombard, Illinois (right outside of Chicago), and this year’s program took us on a trip around the world and across a wide range of uses for patent information.  As Kristin Whitman described last year, the schedule of the PIUG Conference is always a 3-day extravaganza of panels covering a broad variety of topics in the patent information field, and three extra days are also dedicated to various workshops. There’s no way I’d be able to cover every panel and workshop in a single blog post (you can see the abstracts and speaker biographies for all panels here), so instead, I’m just going to share the Top Tens for the conference under two categories:

  1. Product updates
  2. Conclusions that I came away with from the presentations

If you’d like to see the slides for all 2015 presentations, as well as gain access to the slides for all PIUG Conference materials dating back to 2007, then I’d highly recommend becoming a member of PIUG. The group is the perfect organization for patent searchers, patent analysts, and librarians in the IP field to use for networking, continuing education, and career development.
