Heidelberg Laureate Forum: A Visionaries’ Gathering

11.08.2015

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.

Background
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).

To the Editors
With this press release, we would like to extend an invitation to attend the Forum as well as to report on the event. Journalists, who wish to attend the 3rd HLF, are requested to register at:

Im Focus: Can the immune system be boosted against Staphylococcus aureus by delivery of messenger RNA?

Staphylococcus aureus is a feared pathogen (MRSA, multi-resistant S. aureus) due to frequent resistances against many antibiotics, especially in hospital infections. Researchers at the Paul-Ehrlich-Institut have identified immunological processes that prevent a successful immune response directed against the pathogenic agent. The delivery of bacterial proteins with RNA adjuvant or messenger RNA (mRNA) into immune cells allows the re-direction of the immune response towards an active defense against S. aureus. This could be of significant importance for the development of an effective vaccine. PLOS Pathogens has published these research results online on 25 May 2017.

Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) is a bacterium that colonizes by far more than half of the skin and the mucosa of adults, usually without causing infections....

Im Focus: A quantum walk of photons

Physicists from the University of Würzburg are capable of generating identical looking single light particles at the push of a button. Two new studies now demonstrate the potential this method holds.

The quantum computer has fuelled the imagination of scientists for decades: It is based on fundamentally different phenomena than a conventional computer....

Im Focus: Turmoil in sluggish electrons’ existence

An international team of physicists has monitored the scattering behaviour of electrons in a non-conducting material in real-time. Their insights could be beneficial for radiotherapy.

We can refer to electrons in non-conducting materials as ‘sluggish’. Typically, they remain fixed in a location, deep inside an atomic composite. It is hence...

Im Focus: Wafer-thin Magnetic Materials Developed for Future Quantum Technologies

Two-dimensional magnetic structures are regarded as a promising material for new types of data storage, since the magnetic properties of individual molecular building blocks can be investigated and modified. For the first time, researchers have now produced a wafer-thin ferrimagnet, in which molecules with different magnetic centers arrange themselves on a gold surface to form a checkerboard pattern. Scientists at the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel and the Paul Scherrer Institute published their findings in the journal Nature Communications.

Ferrimagnets are composed of two centers which are magnetized at different strengths and point in opposing directions. Two-dimensional, quasi-flat ferrimagnets...
