The following subject areas are appropriate for this year's meeting. Presentations from sponsors can be product descriptions and should they merely describe one vendor’s product or services. 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.
