The 2017 IP Statistics for Decision Makers (IPSDM) conference took place in Mexico City, Mexico, on 14-15 November, co-organised by the Canadian Intellectual Property Office (CIPO), the Mexican Institute of Industrial Property (IMPI), the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) and the OECD.
The IPSDM conference aimed to discuss how intellectual property data, statistics and analysis are used and can be used to inform decision-makers in both the public and private sectors, and to identify key information needs and possible shortcomings.

- IP and the digital transformation of economies and societies
