For one week in August, Heidelberg once again becomes a focal point of the world of mathematics and computer science. Recipients of the most prestigious prizes in the fields of mathematics and computer science are coming together to share ideas with young researchers.
From August 23 to 28, the 3rd Heidelberg Laureate Forum gathers 27 recipients of the ACM A.M. Turing Award, the Fields Medal, the Abel Prize, and the Nevanlinna Prize. They are the leading experts in many fields of Mathematics and Computer Science and each is renowned for profound developments in their fields of research.
However, the Heidelberg Laureate Forum is also a testament to the fact that science touches everybody's life. How do you make the internet a secure place? How can you take advantage of Big Data? Are there algorithms that solve problems faster or even make computers "intelligent" in a field?
Many of the laureates coming together in Heidelberg are working on such questions, and their answers and visions are affecting politics, society and other aspects of life.
The Heidelberg Laureate Forum is highly effective in its objective to connect experts with the next generation of leading scientists and the public: Eleven of the laureates coming to Heidelberg have been at the previous two meetings, and eleven will come to Heidelberg for the second time. 200 young researchers from more than 50 nations have been selected to participate in the 3rd Heidelberg Laureate Forum for an up close and personal meeting with their scientific role models.
Lectures and workshops offer plenty of opportunity for scientific exchange, while a rich variety of social events encourages the young researchers to engage in casual conversations with their scientific role models.

The Heidelberg Laureate Forum Foundation (HLFF) annually organizes the Heidelberg Laureate Forum (HLF), which is a networking event for mathematicians and computer scientists from all over the world. The 3rd Heidelberg Laureate Forum will take place from August 23 to 28, 2015, with the dates alternating each year between August and September. The HLF was initiated by the German foundation Klaus Tschira Stiftung (KTS), which promotes natural sciences, mathematics and computer science, and the Heidelberg Institute for Theoretical Studies (HITS). The Forum is organized by the HLFF along with the KTS and HITS. It is strongly supported by the award-granting institutions, the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM: ACM A.M. Turing Award), the International Mathematical Union (IMU: Fields Medal, Nevanlinna Prize), and the Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters (DNVA: Abel Prize).

The Institute of Semiconductor Technology and the Institute of Physical and Theoretical Chemistry, both members of the Laboratory for Emerging Nanometrology (LENA), at Technische Universität Braunschweig are partners in a new European research project entitled ChipScope, which aims to develop a completely new and extremely small optical microscope capable of observing the interior of living cells in real time. A consortium of 7 partners from 5 countries will tackle this issue with very ambitious objectives during a four-year research program.
To demonstrate the usefulness of this new scientific tool, at the end of the project the developed chip-sized microscope will be used to observe in real-time...
Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.
The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.
Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...
Researchers at the Goethe University Frankfurt, together with partners from the University of Tübingen in Germany and Queen Mary University as well as Francis Crick Institute from London (UK) have developed a novel technology to decipher the secret ubiquitin code.
Ubiquitin is a small protein that can be linked to other cellular proteins, thereby controlling and modulating their functions. The attachment occurs in many...

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.
