Heidelberg Laureate Forum

The 7th Heidelberg Laureate Forum will be held September 22-27, 2019 (with young researcher registration on September 21). This prominent, versatile event combines scientific, social and outreach activities in a unique atmosphere, fueled by comprehensive exchange and scientific inspiration. Laureate lectures, young researcher workshops and a structure welcoming unfettered discussions are the elements that compose the Forum’s platform. Young researchers in computer science and mathematics from all over the world can apply for one of the 200 coveted spots to participate in the Heidelberg Laureate Forum (HLF), an annual networking event. The HLF offers all accepted young researchers the great opportunity to personally interact with the laureates of the most prestigious prizes in the fields of mathematics and computer science. For one week, the recipients of the Abel Prize, the ACM A.M. Turing Award, the ACM Prize in Computing, the Fields Medal, and the Nevanlinna Prize engage in a cross-generational scientific dialogue with young researchers in Heidelberg, Germany. For more information, please visit: www.heidelberg-laureate-forum.org.

Young researchers at all phases of their careers (undergraduate/pre-master, graduate PhD or postdoc) are encouraged to submit their applications by February 15, 2019 (midnight at the dateline) via the following link: http://application.heidelberg-laureate-forum.org.  All applicants will be notified by the end of April 2019 whether or not they will be invited.  For questions regarding requirements and the application process, please contact Young Researchers Relations at:yr@heidelberg-laureate-forum.org.

Young researchers from the United States may apply for travel grants from ORAU.  There will be a separate application process after nominees have been confirmed by the Heidelberg Laureate Forum selection committee in April 2019.  If selected by HLF’s international committee, PhD students from the United States will be contacted by the ORAU team to discuss the application process for available travel grants.
