Following on the success of the previous three editions of NEXTCOMP, the University of Mauritius is organizing its fourth International Conference on Next Generation Computing Applications, NextComp2024. We invite submissions from academia, government, and industry presenting novel research on state of the art computing technologies, as well as case studies and implementation experiences. The conference will address new developments in theory and practice in a range of themes as per the four(4) tracks. The technical program will consist of keynote addresses and papers presented in regular technical sessions.
