Encouraged by Excellence
The opportunity to join the annual Heidelberg Laureate Forum is provided exclusively to outstanding young scientists in mathematics and computer science – undergraduates, PhD candidates and postdocs. In order to participate, they have to pass a multi-step application and selection process.
200 young researchers from all academic stages, based at institutions and universities around the globe come together for a week of scientific networking. Within the unique atmosphere of the HLF, participants from diverse disciplines are able to discuss their research and how they approach problems.
Exchanging ideas and learning new perspectives about ongoing or future research projects is a vital element for scientific progression. With many research issues becoming increasingly complex, cultivating reliable networks has become essential for scientists from all backgrounds. Connecting with fellow scientists is therefore pivotal for the future career of a young researcher.
Extensive interaction with the laureates of mathematics and computer science is possible because their participation is not only limited to giving lectures, instead it continues throughout all aspects of the program. Ample time is provided to discuss with these scientific pioneers during breaks, meals and social events.
At the Heidelberg Laureate Forum, the brightest minds in mathematics and computer science interweave, find inspiration and push forward.
Unique opportunity to have candid conversation with the giants of math and computer science. The most beautiful conference I’ve ever attended.
It was an excellent and really inspirational meeting. Thanks for the nice organization. And for all young researchers reading this, remember, “It is what you do in the dark, that puts you out into the light”.
The Heidelberg Laureate Forum is the opportunity to feel yourself at the top of the scientific world, so shortly speaking it is scientific Olympus. I believe that the HLF is the greatest thing that can ever happen in a life of a Young Researcher.
It was an exciting experience to be in the company of such esteemed people. I feel inspired and motivated and can’t thank the HLFF enough for granting me this opportunity.
Brilliant, impressive, appreciated, needed.
This is the best conference I have ever participated at! There is a lot of inspiring talks to motivate the scientific curiosity of a young researcher.
