The Heidelberg Laureate Forum offers the extraordinary opportunity to meet some of the pre-eminent scientists in mathematics and computer science to a select group of young researchers. During the week-long event, they will be able to get to know recipients of the most prestigious prizes for mathematics (Fields Medal and Abel Prize) and computer science (Turing Award).The Heidelberg Laureate Forum will take place from September 22 until 27, 2013 for the first time and will be held annually thereafter. Lectures and workshops offer plenty of opportunity for scientific exchange, while a rich variety of social events encourages the young researchers to engage in casual conversations with their scientific role models.
