The Heidelberg Laureate Forum is an annual meeting bringing together winners of the most prestigious scientific awards in Mathematics (Abel Prize, Fields Medal and Nevanlinna Prize) and Computer Science (ACM Turing Award) with a select group of highly talented young researchers. Roughly 200 young scientists from all over the world get the unique opportunity to interact with their scholarly role models during lectures, panels and discussions. At the same time, the up and coming scientists can engage in inspiring and motivating conversations with the laureates during various social events. The Heidelberg Laureate Forum provides a platform for scientific dialogue across generations.
Each year AMSI and AustMS provide funding for young Australian researchers to attend.
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, after careful consideration by the organisers, it was decided that the 8th Heidelberg Laureate Forum, originally planned to take place this September, will be postponed until next year.
