In 2013, Klaus Tschira established the HLFF, a subsidiary of the German foundation Klaus Tschira Stiftung (KTS), with the goal of fostering scientific exchange and young researchers of mathematics and computer science. The HLFF hosts the Heidelberg Laureate Forum (HLF), an international and cross-generational networking event where 200 outstanding young researchers from mathematics and computer science interact with the recipients of most prestigious prizes in these disciplines: the Abel Prize, the ACM A.M. Turing Award, the ACM Prize in Computing, the Fields Medal and the Nevanlinna Prize. The 5th HLF will take place in September of this year.
The public should also benefit from and be inspired by the extensive accompanying programs of this international networking event.
