Heidelberg Laureate Forum

Welcome to the

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, IMU Abacus 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.

10 Years of the HLF

New Spotlight: Alumni in Action!

In the latest installment of our Spotlight: Alumni in Action series, we talk to mathematical physicist and HLF alumnus Michal Jex about his project “Sci-Me!”, a science-themed board game that lets players simulate the everyday life of a researcher.


Congratulations to the Young Researchers of the 11th HLF!

Congratulations to the 200 exceptional young researchers selected for this year’s 11th Heidelberg Laureate Forum! We look forward to an exciting week of scientific exchange, exploring new ideas and bringing together promising young researchers with the brightest minds of mathematics and computer science. Check back soon to find more details on this upcoming event, taking place from September 22 to 27. Have a look at our past HLFs here.
