Not your typical tech conference

CASCON is a platform for the open dissemination of technology advancements in applied research.

Since 1991, CASCON has attracted 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, stimulating workshops, and an engaging technology expo. Conference proceedings are published in the ACM Digital Library.
