The Heidelberg Laureate Forum Foundation (HLFF) is delighted to announce that Brian Schmidt, who received the Nobel Prize in Physics in 2011, will give the Lindau Lecture at the 4th Heidelberg Laureate Forum (HLF). Due to the resounding success of both Stefan Hell’s Lindau Lecture at the 3rd HLF and Vinton Cerf’s Heidelberg Lecture at this year’s Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings, it is with great anticipation that the HLFF looks forward to Brian Schmidt’s contribution at 4th HLF. This exciting collaboration between Lindau and Heidelberg has been implemented to symbolize the strong affiliation between the two events.
