CASCON x EVOKE is the premier industrial and academic conference for advanced studies in computer science and software engineering sponsored by the IBM CAS and EVOKE Foundation. The conference 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 conference program features thought-provoking keynotes, original research papers, technological industry talks, stimulating workshops, and an engaging technology expo.


We invite high quality submissions of regular (10-page) and short (6-page) papers describing original and unpublished results. Best Paper and Best Student Paper awards will be given to recognize the best technical contributions of the event in terms of originality, clarity, and potential impact.
