The Heidelberg Laureate Forum (HLF) is where “Laureates of mathematics and computer science meet the next generation.” It brings together Laureates in computing (recipients of the Turing Award and ACM Prize in Computing) and mathematics (Fields Medal, Abel Prize and Nevanlinna Prize) with 200 young researchers. The event is a mix of presentations by the Laureates, young researcher posters and workshops, as well as social events.

Heidelberg Laureate ForumACM encourages young computer scientists and mathematicians from all over the world to apply for one of the 200 coveted spots to participate in the Heidelberg Laureate Forum, an annual event. The HLF offers all accepted young researchers the great opportunity to personally meet the winners of the most prestigious prizes in their fields.
For one week, recipients of the ACM A.M. Turing Award and the ACM Prize in Computing (Computer Science), the Abel Prize (Mathematics), the Fields Medal (Mathematics), and the Nevanlinna Prize (Mathematical Aspects of Information Science) will engage in a cross-generational scientific dialogue with young researchers in Heidelberg, Germany.
The eighth HLF will take place September 20 to 25, 2020. This high-profile event combines scientific, social and outreach activities in an informal atmosphere, and is fueled by comprehensive exchange and scientific inspiration.
Applications must be submitted online at by February 14, 2020. Successful candidates will be selected by an international committee of experts to ensure that only the most qualified candidates are invited. Those who are accepted will be notified in April.
