                    General Information:

                    This year's Patinnova conference will be the
                    largest gathering of intellectual property rights
                    experts ever held in Europe. Halkidiki in Greece
                    is the venue for this event between 18 and 22
                    October 1999 when the European Patent Office will
                    join forces with the European Commission in an
                    unprecedented effort to promote the value of
                    patents and patent information. 

                    Patinnova '99 will also combine with this year's
                    EPIDOS conference to create an event that will
                    bring users of patents and patent information
                    up-to-date. It will concentrate on three main

                    - Current and future developments in patent
                    information; - Current and future developments in
                    raising awareness of patents/policy initiatives; -
                    Patent litigation in Europe: Is there a problem?
                    How often does it occur? What is the cost? What
                    does the future offer? 

                    The conference will focus on the retrieval of
                    patent information, the Internet and other tools
                    available on the market which delegates will be
                    able to try at a parallel exhibition and free
                    Internet café. There will also be a number of
                    specialised training courses on offer at the


                    Simultaneous interpretation in English, French,
                    German and Greek will be available at the event.
