EVOKE CASCON 2020 Virtual
November 10 - 13, 2020

EVOKE CASCON 2020 is going virtual. The safety and well-being of all conference participants is our top priority. Originally scheduled to occur November 10 - 13, 2020 at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, the conference will now occur over the same period, but virtual, with options for participants to attend live or view replays.

Papers accepted and long abstracts of accepted workshops for EVOKE CASCON 2020 will be published in the ACM Digital Library.

EVOKE CASCON organizing committee and steering committee are working hard to create an online experience that will appeal to our Industry and Academic audiences in an online format. To build the program, we conducted interviews with academics, industry leaders, undergraduate and graduate students that made us understand the positive and negative experiences that conference participants have at online events. We would also like to thank all the people that participated in our latest survey about online events. If you would like to help us shaping the conference, you can still take the survey, and have an impact on the content.

We are in the process of soliciting Workshops, Industry Talks and Exhibits. We just closed on the acceptance of Academic Papers. In the next few weeks our website, and schedule will start taking shape. Stay tuned!
