You may have heard of the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings which are now in their 63rd year and have become a unique platform for the dialogue between different scientific generations in medicine, physics, chemistry, and the economic sciences, fields for which Nobel Prizes are awarded, see http://www.lindau-nobel.org/.
Creating a similar event for mathematics and/or computer science has been contemplated by various persons and groups. Thanks to Klaus Tschira and his foundation, this idea has now become reality.
The first Heidelberg Laureate Forum will take place from September 22 until 27, 2013 and bring together the best students in mathematics and computer science with winners of the most prestigious awards in these two disciplines:
Abel, Fields, and Turing Laureates. Detailed information can be found at http://www.heidelberg-laureate-forum.org/.
The Heidelberg Laureate Forum is supported by various institutions, among these are
- The Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters
- The Association for Computing Machinery (ACM)
- The International Mathematical Union (IMU)
which award the three outstanding prizes.
In the attachment is the press release which describe show young researchers in the fields of mathematics and computer science can apply for participation. The application Web page is:
IMU asks the readers of IMU-Net to distribute this information among their friends and colleagues so that as many potential candidates for participation as possible are reached. Please note that the application deadline is
February 15, 2013.
