The PIUG Northeast Conference, held in Central New Jersey, is a three-day event beginning with an STN Patent Forum, followed by a full day of plenary talks, ending with a day of vendor-sponsored workshops. PIUG brings together experts in the areas of chemistry, biology, engineering and intellectual property. It is an excellent forum to learn and share best practices in searching, retrieving, visualizing and reporting patent information. The exhibit hall highlights our vendors expertise and products. The key objectives of this meeting are to provide opportunities for learning, professional development and networking.
