Heidelberg Laureate Forum (HLF), September 18–23, 2022

Informação recebida da IMU. Os interessados em participar devem contactar os seus respetivos centros sobre o processo de nomeação.

The 9th Heidelberg Laureate Forum (HLF) will take place in Heidelberg, Germany between September 18–23, 2022.

At the HLF, all winners of the Fields Medal, the Abel Prize, the ACM A.M. Turing Award, the Nevanlinna Prize, and 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. Over the course of the week-long conference, young researchers will be given the exclusive possibility to profoundly connect with their scientific role models and find out how the laureates made it to the top of their fields. As described by a young researcher, “The balance between scientific sessions and informal meetings, as well as discussions on the most up-to-date subjects was just perfect! As a young researcher, this was an experience I’ll not ever forget, and I believe the contacts I made will have a positive impact on my future career.”

Applications for participation at the 9th HLF are open in three categories: Undergraduate/Pre-Master, Graduate PhD, and PostDocs. The application period for the 9th HLF runs from November 11, 2021, until February 11, 2022. 

Young researchers at all phases of their careers (Undergraduate/Pre-Master, Graduate PhD, or PostDocs) are encouraged to complete and submit their applications by February 11 (midnight CET).

The IMU Adhering Organizations and national mathematical societies can also nominate young researchers. Nominated persons get “priority treatment”, but, since there may be too many nominations, they have no acceptance guarantee.

See the webpage https://application.heidelberg-laureate-forum.org for the online application and nomination forms.

The deadline for application is February 11, 2022.

For questions regarding requirements and the application process, please contact Young Researchers Relations at: <yr@heidelberg-laureate-forum.org>. All applications that are completed and submitted by the deadline are meticulously reviewed by an international committee of experts to ensure that only the most qualified candidates are invited. There are 100 spaces available for each discipline of mathematics and computer science. All applicants will be notified by the end of April 2022 whether or not they are invited. If meeting in person is not safely possible, a digital alternative will be developed that creates spaces for effective, sustainable interaction.

The IMU celebrated its belated centennial in Strasbourg on 27–28 September 2021, with the conference “Mathematics without Borders”, see Circular Letter 12/2021.  We were delighted to welcome around 200 attendees to the conference.

To capture the occasion and for the benefit of those unable to attend, the talks were recorded and can now be viewed here. Additionally, the IMU engaged the science journalists Marianne Freiberger and Rachel Thomas from Plus magazine to write about the event, see attachment.  Every Adhering Organization is free to publish this article in their newsletter or similar outlet on the condition that the authors’ names are given and we are informed about where the article appears. We encourage every AO to use the article.

If you want to illustrate the article, you may use the group photo taken at the conference along with the following photo credit: Catherine Schröder/Université de Strasbourg.
