Hello, everybody!

I want to introduce you Hydra 2020 conference in Moscow, Russia. It is a practical conference on concurrent and distributed computing that unites scientists and people from the industry. We invite you to submit a talk to the conference: https://hydraconf.com/callforpapers/. The talk should take approximately 1 hour. You need to submit a small abstract plus the plan of the talk. Unfortunately, there are no proceedings, but on the other hand, the speakers (whose talks are accepted) are provided with the flight tickets and the hotel accommodation for free. So, if you wanted to visit Moscow for free, this is a good choice.

Currently, there are five approved speakers, and we hope for more: Michael Scott, Martin Kleppmann, Heidi Howard, Cindy Sridharan, and Nikita Koval. The talks of e previous year can be found here: https://2019.hydraconf.com/.

If you are interested and you have any questions, feel free to contact me: [log in to unmask].

Below, you can find a long version of the invitation with more details.
