The Heidelberg Laureate Forum


Saturday, February 28, 2015

The National Science Foundation (NSF) and Oak Ridge Associated Universities (ORAU) are pleased to announce that they will sponsor a maximum of 20 young researchers to attend the 3rd annual Heidelberg Laureate Forum in Heidelberg, Germany, from August 23 through 28, 2015. NSF and ORAU invite Duke to nominate computer science and mathematics graduate students and postdocs to be members of the U.S. Delegation to this prestigious meeting.

The HLF offers accepted young researchers the great opportunity to personally meet the winners of the most prestigious prizes in their fields. For one week, the recipients of the Abel Prize, the ACM A.M. Turing Award, the Fields Medal, and the Nevanlinna Prize engage in a cross-generational scientific dialogue with young researchers in Heidelberg, Germany.

During the HLF week, young researchers will be given the exclusive possibility to profoundly connect with their scientific role models and find out how they made it to the top of their fields. 24 laureates attended the 2nd HLF, including Martin Hairer and Manjul Bhargava, both 2014 Fields Medalists, and Leslie Lamport, the current winner of the ACM A.M. Turing Award. Together with their fellow laureates, they shared their knowledge with 200 outstanding young researchers from nearly 60 different countries. The Forum format consists of formal lectures in the morning, and the remainder of the day is set aside for the young researchers to meet informally with the Laureate scientists, as well as with their peers from around the world.
