The 4th Heidelberg Laureate Forum came to a successful close with the farewell dinner on Friday, September 23. We sincerely extend our gratitude to the laureates, the young researchers and to all of those that helped to make the 4th HLF such a unique event.
We would like to bid farewell to Jean-Christophe Yoccoz who will be remembered for being an exceptional mathematician, for receiving the Fields Medal in 1994 among many other awards and for his devotion to teaching mathematics. With his passing on September 3, we extend our deepest condolences to his family, friends and colleagues
For those of us at the Heidelberg Laureate Forum Foundation, we would like to express our sincere appreciation to Jean-Christophe Yoccoz for being an integral part of the Scientific Committee.
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.
