HS Fatesingh & RC Parida


The Heidelberg Laureate Forum Foundation (HLFF) has been organising the Heidelberg Laureate Forum (HLF) annually since 2013, an international networking event for mathematicians and computer scientists. German physicist Klaus Tschira Stiftung (1940-2015) laid the forum’s groundwork. The scientific partners of the HLF are the Heidelberg Institute for Theoretical Studies (HITS) and Heidelberg University. The HLF is strongly supported by award-granting institutions such as the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), the International Mathematical Union (IMU) and the Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters (DNVA). The HLF provides the platform and time for leading researchers in their fields to interact, share ideas, network and form lasting connections that promise to develop into fruitful collaborations.

The 10th HLF took place in the University of Heidelberg, Germany, from 24-29 September 2023 and brought together 32 laureates of the most prestigious prizes in mathematics and computer science, such as recipients of the Abel Prize, Field Medal, Navenlinna Prize, ACM Prize, as well as 200 bright young researchers of the next generation from over 60 nations around the world. Besides, 20 alumni from past HLFs were invited to share their experience and expertise. The weeklong event featured a host of fascinating Laureate Lectures, Lindau Lecture, Laureate Discussions, Panel Discussions, Scientific Interactions and other formats. The event discussed some of the timeliest issues relating to mathematics and computer science. In honour of its tenth anniversary, the HLF featured several notable additions of new formats…read more on NOPR
