At the HLF, we are used to seeing laureates give lectures and meeting enthousiastic young researchers. However, the HLF is also an opportunity for young researchers to showcase their cutting edge research, and exchange their innovative ideas with both their peers and the laureates.
On Thursday, a Poster Flash session, where the young participants gave 2-3 minute presentations of their research, was followed by a Poster Session. We talked briefly to some of the young scientists, and got the feeling of what’s to come in the future in terms of research. For example: machine learning, robotics, mathematical models with high impact applications (like fingerprint identification), and graph theory applied to cryptography.
