The Heidelberg Laureate Forum Foundation ardently congratulates Michael Stonebraker for obtaining the 2014 ACM A.M. Turing Award, as well as John Nash and Louis Nirenberg for receiving the 2015 Abel Prize! Furthermore, we are honored to extend our earnest invitation to the laureates to attend the 3rd Heidelberg Laureate Forum this August.
This is an excellent example of industry-academia interaction. We need more people who can help to highlight top-level research of this nature and encourage excellence in science.
We need to attract to and retain in mathematical research all the young bright minds that we can reach, eager to work enthusiastically to carry forward the whole living enterprise of mathematics.
We celebrate this collaboration between the computing and math disciplines and the opportunity to raise awareness of their common threads and indispensable impacts.
Meeting with the scientific leaders of Mathematics and Computer Science will be extremely inspiring and encouraging for the young scientists.
