5th Heidelberg Laureate Forum


Event Details


This is a short-term notice regarding the 5th Heidelberg Laureate Forum (HLF), see http://www.heidelberg-laureate-forum.org,
which will take place in Heidelberg, Germany during September 24 – 29, 2017.

At HLF all winners of the Fields Medal, the Abel Prize, the Alan Turing Award and the Nevanlinna Medal, and this year for the first time the ACM Prize in Computing, are invited to attend. In addition, young and talented computer scientists and mathematicians are invited to apply for participation. The previous HLFs have been an exceptional success. The HLF serves as a great platform for interaction between the masters in the fields of mathematics and computer science and young talents.

Applications for participation at the 5th HLF are open in three categories:Undergraduates, PhD Candidates, and PostDocs. See the webpage
www.application.heidelberg-laureate-forum.org
for the online application form and further information. The IMU Adhering Organizations and national mathematical societies can nominate young researchers.

Nominated persons get “priority treatment”, but, since there may be too many nominations, they have no acceptance guarantee. During the nomination process you will be asked for an Org-ID, which is IMU47278 for the IMU. The deadline for application is February 14, 2017.

IMU asks its Adhering Organizations to distribute this information among their national mathematical communities, if possible through the newsletters of the national mathematical societies.

The HLF was initiated by the late German entrepreneur Klaus Tschira, and is supported by the Klaus Tschira Foundation, The Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters, The Association for Computing Machinery, as well as The International Mathematical Union.
