Mathematics and computer science have evolved into a matter of utmost importance in our modern society. We are confronted with the product of mathematical and computational research in all situations and aspects of our daily lives. To ensure that this technical revolution continues to thrive, science in all of its facets has to be persistently promoted and encouraged. The Heidelberg Laureate Forum rises to this challenge by bringing together the most exceptional mathematicians and computer scientists of their generations. Each year, in the last complete week of September, the recipients of the most prestigious awards in mathematics and computer science, the Abel Prize, ACM A.M. Turing Award, ACM Prize in Computing, Fields Medal and Nevanlinna Prize, meet 200 selected young researchers from all over the world. Participants spend a week interacting and networking in a relaxed atmosphere designed to encourage scientific exchange.
Apply now for the 8th HLF!
Young researchers in mathematics and computer science at all academic stages (undergraduate/pre-master, graduate PhD or postdoc) are encouraged to apply to the 8th HLF! 200 carefully selected scientists will spend a week interacting with the laureates of their disciplines and peers from various academic backgrounds.
The application period for the 8th HLF runs from November 14, 2019, until February 14, 2020.
