Computer Assisted Mechanistic Evaluation of Organic reactions (CAMEO) is an expert system that predicts the outcome of organic reactions given starting materials, reagents and reaction conditions. Versions are available for execution on Macintosh, Linux, SGI, and SUN computers. The SGI and SUN versions use XWindows, so they can run on any Xterminal with an SGI or SUN as host.

CAMEO predictions are based primarily on mechanistic reasoning. Whenever relevant, it uses parameters such as pKa's or Taft steric values calculated internally by specially developed algorithms. CAMEO has been extended to cover most of the major classes of organic reactions. It is constructed as a modular expert system, each module dealing with a different reaction class. Current modules handle Basic/Nucleophilic, Acidic/Electrophilic, Electrophilic Aromatic Substitution (EAS), Radical, Heterocyclic, Pericyclic, Oxidative/Reductive, Carbene, Pd Organometallic and Photochemical reactions. Apart from reaction predictions, the program can also perform a number of other functions, such as three-dimensional structure minimizations, pKa predictions, bond angle and length calculations, etc.
