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).

For the first time ever, a cloud of ultra-cold atoms has been successfully created in space on board of a sounding rocket. The MAIUS mission demonstrates that quantum optical sensors can be operated even in harsh environments like space – a prerequi-site for finding answers to the most challenging questions of fundamental physics and an important innovation driver for everyday applications.

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.
While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...
