Conjuration late 14c., coniuracioun, "conspiracy" (now obsolete), also "a calling upon something supernatural," from Old French conjuracion "spell, incantation, formula used in exorcism," from Latin coniurationem (nominative coniuratio) "a swearing together, conspiracy," noun of action from coniurare "to swear together; conspire,"

Convocation is again late 14c., "assembly of persons," from Old French convocation and directly from Latin convocationem (nominative convocatio), noun of action from past participle stem of convocare "to call together,"
In normal usage this is a term describing a meeting of members of an organisation,It is also an ecclesiastical term used in the calling together of clergy and Bishops as well as in Business describing the meeting of delegates.

It is not common in Occult works and therefore you may have seen Convocation used in the Abramelin system where this is used to describe the calling together of groups of spirits rather than the more singular Evocation.
