Subject Areas for 2015

The following subject areas are appropriate for this year's meeting. Presentations should not be product descriptions, nor should they merely describe one vendor’s product or services (there is an exhibition that is appropriate for this). The main consideration in selecting presentations will be their relevance and interest to either users or service providers in the evolving area of scientific, technical and patent information. The following list of main themes is not exhaustive, and all presentation offers will be considered.

We focus on the latest trends in the patent and STI community, such as: 


  • Future role of professional information specialists and providers
  • Collaboration or data collection via social media
  • Asian patent and scientific information Patent and scientific information in the cloud
  • Trends in dissemination of patent information from national and international patent offices
  • Implications for the information community of mergers and acquisition in the chemical and pharma domains 
  • Experiences in out-sourcing search or data compilation
  • New devices and new subscription model. Information anywhere anytime, on any device
  • Impact of new entrants such as Amazon and Google; co-operation, or competition?
  • Digital workplace of the future for end users and professional users.
  • Trends in the area of chemical and pharmaceutical information
  • Innovation and organisation of in-house information services

We focus more on the future and a little less about what is available now.
