28th Annual International Conference on Computer Science and Software Engineering

The theme of CASCON 2018 is Think: Cognitive Computing, Big Data, Cloud, Security and Privacy This year we aim to explore the economic and societal impacts of cognitive systems. Join us for CASCON 2018 and be exposed to thought-provoking keynotes, original researchers and emerging topics papers, stimulating workshops, and our famous CASCON Expo.

CASCON is a premier industrial and academic conference for advanced studies in computer science and software engineering sponsored by the IBM Canada Laboratory. CASCON attracts software developers, researchers, innovators, technologists and decision makers from academia, industry, and government who come together to learn about technology trends, present papers, participate in workshops, and exhibit prototypes and solutions. The CASCON program features thought-provoking keynotes, original research papers, stimulating workshops, and an engaging technology expo. Conference proceedings are published in the ACM Digital Library.
