      What Is Hydra 2020?

      Hydra is a tech conference that gathers top-rated scientists and developers willing to dive deep into concurrent and distributed computing.
      Computing nowadays is inherently concurrent and distributed. Be it a mainstream multi-core machine, a computing cluster, or a large-scale distributed service, a modern computing system involves multiple processes that concurrently perform independent computations and communicate to synchronize their activities. Understanding concurrent and distributed computations is therefore essential to be competitive in practice or research in computer science and engineering.
