The Heidelberg Laureate Forum Foundation (HLFF) will make its initial appearance at the AAAS 2016 Annual Meeting this February 11-15. The HLF will be co-exhibiting with the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings at this year’s event in Washington, D.C., and can be found at booth No. 1829. Taking advantage of reaching such a diversified audience of the scientific community at the AAAS 2016 Annual Meeting was not an opportunity to be missed.

Participants are encouraged to come by our booth to learn more about the experience that the annual Heidelberg Laureate Forum and the Lindau Meetings offer young scientists. Our representatives are eager to inform all potential participants about eligibility, the application process and funding possibilities. Both events are built on the foundation of fostering scientific networking and creating the space for dialogue to ignite progress.

The allure of Heidelberg and Lindau is felt throughout the scientific community. Each year, the laureates of mathematics and computer science, recipients of the Fields Medal, the Nevanlinna Prize, the ACM A.M. Turing Award and the Abel Prize travel to Heidelberg to meet the next generation of exceptional researchers. Modeling the concept that the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings have been using brilliantly for decades, the purpose of both events is to provide the opportunity for this generation’s brightest researchers to meet the pioneers of their fields.

On the evening preluding the AAAS 2016 Annual Meeting, the German Embassy is presenting the exhibition “NOBELS and The Masters of Abstraction,” which is a compilation of portraits captured by Berlin photographer Peter Badge.
