This year’s IP Statistics for Decision Makers (IPSDM) conference will be hosted by IP Australia and takes place in Sydney, Australia, 15-16 November 2016.

The IPSDM conference aims 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.

The 2016 IPSDM conference will discuss the latest empirical evidence based on IP statistics, and the OECD IP Statistics task force is currently working on the themes of the conference.
