Special Announcement for 2018 We are delighted to announce that Lucy Antunes (formerly Lucy Akers) will be leading the planning and development of the 2018 IPI-ConfEx conference programme.  Lucy is well known and widely respected for her extensive experience and knowledge of the patent information arena and for her past contributions and current involvement with patent information professionals and user groups.  For example, among other accomplishments, Lucy has served as a former Chair of the Patent Information Users Group (PIUG) for two consecutive terms.     This background, together with her visionary perspectives and passion for the industry, makes Lucy  the ideal person to compile a stimulating, practical and educational line-up of sessions and speakers for the forthcoming IPI-ConfEx.  Lucy is excited to be taking on the responsibility of this role and is  looking forward to working with a wide range of contributors in addressing the key challenges and  opportunities that exist for patent information managers and search professionals in the current  technical and business climate.
