4th Heidelberg Laureate Forum

ORAU Logo NSF logo


The Heidelberg Laureate Forum is the result of a joint initiative of the Heidelberg Institute for Theoretical Studies and the Klaus Tschira Stiftung. The latter has been a supporter of the Lindau Nobel Laureates Meeting for many years, and the experience of this event spawned the idea of creating something similar for the two crucial scientific disciplines Mathematics and Computer Science.

The 4th HLF will take place from September 18-23, 2016.

It will once again bring together winners of the Abel Prize and Fields Medal (mathematics) as well as the Turing Award and Nevanlinna Prize (computer science) for an inspiring week in Heidelberg.

The program is administered by ORAU.
