Young researchers in mathematics and computer science from all over the world can apply for one of the 200 exclusive spots to participate in the Heidelberg Laureate Forum (HLF), an annual networking conference. The HLF offers all accepted young researchers the unique opportunity to interact with the laureates of the most prestigious prizes in the fields of mathematics and computer science. Traditionally, the recipients of the Abel Prize, the ACM A.M. Turing Award, the ACM Prize in Computing, the Fields Medal, the IMU Abacus Medal and the Nevanlinna Prize engage in cross-generational scientific dialogue with young researchers in Heidelberg, Germany.
The application period for the 10th HLF runs from November 11, 2022, until February 11, 2023, midnight at the dateline. Young researchers at all phases of their careers (Undergraduate/Pre-Master, Graduate PhD or Postdoc) are encouraged to complete and submit their applications via the following link: http://application.heidelberg-laureate-forum.org
The 10th HLF will take place from September 24 to 29, 2023 (with young researcher registration taking place on September 23). This prominent, versatile event combines scientific, social and outreach activities in a unique atmosphere, fueled by comprehensive exchange and scientific inspiration. Laureate lectures and discussions as well as various interactive program elements are some of the Forum’s fundamental elements, which are delivered in an environment that provides the space and time for unfettered exchange.
Over the course of the weeklong event, young researchers will have the chance to network and exchange ideas with their peers – 200 of the brightest minds from mathematics and computer science. They will also be given the exclusive opportunity to profoundly connect with their scientific role models and gain valuable insights by interacting with laureates in an unmediated and informal setting. As one young researcher put it: “Meeting the humans behind some of the most formidable inventions and discoveries of our time was phenomenal. What was unexpected, perhaps, was how warm and approachable these individuals turned out to be. I am grateful to have been given this opportunity, and to have shared it with peers who I hope to soon call colleagues, collaborators and friends.”
All applications that are completed and submitted by the deadline are meticulously reviewed by an international committee of experts to ensure that the most qualified candidates are invited. There are 100 spaces available for researchers from both mathematics and computer science, respectively. All applicants will be notified by the end of April 2023 about whether or not they have been selected.
