The 8th HLF 2021



This September 20–23, the digital 8th HLF will offer a diverse blend of traditional and novel components for the selected young researchers and the other participants. There was an effort made to construct a program that unmistakably resembles the HLF while being undeniably optimized for an online format. Providing a space for effective interaction was the principal motivation in tailoring each element.

Certain aspects will simulate the actual event such as laureate lectures and Hot Topic, with the “Spread of Infectious Diseases” as this year’s theme. Other components like the laureate debate and speed-networking are being introduced. Many elements have been optimized for direct interplay and the entire program is on highly accessible platforms. Additionally, workshops designed to provide the young researchers with direct and tangible benefits are scheduled the weeks prior to the 8th HLF.

Though the digital 8th HLF will look and feel very different from the actual event, the fundamental principle remains constant: some of the brightest minds in mathematics and computer science come together for interdisciplinary exchange.

Updates and detailed information will be made available on the website as the program continues to materialize.
