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 National Science Foundation (NSF) and Oak Ridge Associated Universities (ORAU) are sponsoring the inaugural American delegation to the HLF Meeting. Membership in this delegation includes, but is not limited to, a travel award to cover business related expenses to attend the HLF as well as resources to prepare for this prestigious conference. The deadline for applications is Monday, March 3, 2014. Click here to learn how to apply and about the eligibility criteria.
The Heidelberg Laureate Forum is a one-week event combining scientific, social and outreach activities.
The winners of the most prestigious awards in Mathematics and Computer Science, the Abel Prize, the Fields Medal (including the Nevanlinna Prize for contributions in “Mathematical Aspects of Information Science”), and the ACM Turing Award are invited to participate in the Forum.
