CASCON 2008 is the 18th Annual International Conference hosted by the
IBM Centers for Advanced Studies. This "Meeting of Minds" provides an
exciting forum for exchanging ideas and experiences in the
ever-expanding and critical fields of software development and
computing. The CASCON 2008 program will include keynote presentations,
technical papers, workshops, and a technology showcase. The technical
papers program will feature experience reports and original research
papers. The technology showcase will feature poster presentations and
demonstrations on research in progress. As such, CASCON 2008 will be
an excellent venue for presenting original work, exchanging new ideas,
sharing results and experiences, and networking with researchers and
practitioners from academia, industry, and government.
