Young Scientists Invited to Meet Leading Minds in Mathematics and Computer Science. Reminder: Applications due February 15

January 15, 2013

Apply soon! You have one month to become eligible to participate in this unique program.

Young researchers in the fields of mathematics and/or computer science are invited to participate in an extraordinary opportunity to meet some of the pre-eminent scientists in the field. ACM has joined forces with the newly created Heidelberg Laureate Forum (HLF) at to bring students together with the very pioneering researchers who may have sparked their passion for science and math. These role models include recipients of the Abel Prize, the ACM A.M. Turing Award, and the Fields Medal.

The first Heidelberg Laureate Forum will take place September 22-27, 2013 in Heidelberg, Germany. The week-long event will focus on scientific inspiration and exchange through a series of presentations, workshops, panel discussions, and social events involving both the laureates and the young scientists.

The HLF invites new and recent Ph.Ds, Ph.D candidates, and other graduate students involved in research, and undergraduate students with solid experience in, and a commitment to, computing research to apply.
