Mathematics and computer science have evolved into a matter of the utmost importance in our modern and affluent society. We come face to face with the output of mathematical - whether pure or applied mathematics - and computational research in all situations and items of our daily lives: driving a GPS guided car, taking a computer controlled plane or rapid train or cashless payment in the supermarket - computer science and its underlying mathematical theories shape all types of actions.
The Heidelberg Laureate Forum (HLF) is a very new event that aims to unite the highly talented mathematicians and computer scientists of the day. The HLF strongly supports the interaction, exchange and communication amongst researchers throughout all stages of their careers.
To this end, the HLF brings together brilliant mathematicians and computer scientists to gather in a European hotspot of science: the famous and historic city of Heidelberg. Every year during the last week of September, Abel, Fields, Turing and Nevanlinna Laureates will meet up to 200 selected young researchers for a conference week full of inspiration and opportunities.
