WHAT IS CAS?
IBM Advanced Studies (CAS) is a system of engagement for academic collaboration with IBM. We network IBMers with a community of students, researchers, educators, change makers and entrepreneurs to attract ideas, talent, partners and clients to IBM. Together, we explore technical and social challenges around emerging architectures that will define business and computing for the next quarter century.
We currently support 51 joint academic-industry research projects associated with 73 different IBM products, involving 101 IBMers, 45 faculty and 80 graduate students. In advancing the thesis research of each student, these projects also generate publications, patents and IBM product contributions.
DESIGN, RESEARCH, TECHNOLOGY
The IBM CAS Design team embraces diverse experiences and perspectives, reframes technical and social challenges, and launches meaningful engagement and transformation.
The IBM CAS Research team engages students and faculty in joint research projects with IBM product teams to shape industry-leading offerings, grow IBM market share, and advance academic research and publication.
The IBM CAS Technology team applies IBM offerings and expertise to create learning opportunities and proof-of-concept solutions. Provide rapid and cost effective access to people, expertise and technology to build businesses/business solutions.
The Centre for Advanced Studies (CAS) was established in 1990 at the IBM Toronto Software Laboratory. The primary aim of CAS is to facilitate the transfer of research ideas into the products and services in IBM. The first CASCON was held in November 1991 at IBM Toronto Lab, which grew to become the premiere conference in computer science and software engineering in Canada. Today it is one of the most important international conferences in the world in areas such as software engineering, database technology, and the smart internet.
