The application tool for the 4th Heidelberg Laureate Forum is open!

Young researchers in mathematics and computer science from around the world can apply now. The annual networking event opens the space for dialogue between talented young minds and their scientific heroes. Young researchers at all phases of their careers (undergrad, PhD candidates or postdoc) are encouraged to complete and submit their application by February 3 (midnight at the dateline) via the following link:

For one week, from September 18 to 23, 2016, the recipients of the Abel Prize, the ACM A.M. Turing Award, the Fields Medal, and the Nevanlinna Prize engage in a cross-generational scientific dialogue with young researchers in Heidelberg, Germany.

All completed and submitted applications are meticulously reviewed by an international committee of expert mathematicians and computer scientists to ensure that only the most qualified candidates are invited. There are 100 spaces available for each discipline of mathematics and computer science. All applicants will be notified whether or not they will be invited by the beginning of April, 2016 at the latest.
Immediately following the completion of the Forum in August, preparations for the 4th HLF began. A preliminary program for the Forum has already been constructed to give potential participants a good idea of what is in store. Check out what is planned here (subject to change):

The HLF combines scientific, social and outreach activities in an informal atmosphere, fueled by comprehensive exchange and scientific inspiration. Laureate lectures, young researcher workshops and a structure welcoming unfettered discussions are the elements that compose the Forum’s platform.

Background
The Heidelberg Laureate Forum Foundation (HLFF) annually organizes the Heidelberg Laureate Forum (HLF), which is a networking event for mathematicians and computer scientists from all over the world. The 4th Heidelberg Laureate Forum will take place from September 18 to 23, 2016. The HLF was initiated by the German foundation Klaus Tschira Stiftung (KTS), which promotes natural sciences, mathematics and computer science, and the Heidelberg Institute for Theoretical Studies (HITS). The Forum is organized by the HLFF in cooperation with KTS and HITS as well as the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), the International Mathematical Union (IMU), and the Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters (DNVA).
