This September 22-27, recipients of the Abel Prize, ACM A.M. Turing Award, ACM Prize in Computing, Fields Medal, and the Nevanlinna Prize are invited to gather in Heidelberg to meet with 200 young researchers from all over the world at the 7th Heidelberg Laureate Forum (HLF). Journalists from all over the world are encouraged to cover the event and take advantage of the opportunity to interact with the preeminent researchers of mathematics and computer science.
Recipients of the Abel Prize, ACM A.M. Turing Award, ACM Prize in Computing, Fields Medal, and the Nevanlinna Prize are invited to gather in Heidelberg to meet with 200 young researchers from all over the world at the 7th Heidelberg Laureate Forum (HLF).
In order to reach a broader, more international audience, the Heidelberg Laureate Forum Foundation (HLFF) provides a select number of travel grants for journalists to cover the event, creating a space to interact with the preeminent scientists of mathematics and computer science.
The 7th HLF will take place from September 22-27, 2019, and applications for the travel grants are accepted until May 20, 2019.
The HLF offers a carefully selected group of young researchers in mathematics and computer science the extraordinary chance to meet the preeminent scientists in their fields for one week of cross-generational, scientific dialogue.
What distinguishes the HLF from traditional scientific conferences is the unique atmosphere that inspires a blend of acute scientific discussions and informal interactions among the participants.
Lectures, workshops and panel discussions embolden scientifically driven debate, while various social events encourage the participants to pursue their discourse outside the lecture halls and to get to know each other.
After carefully evaluating each application, the Heidelberg Laureate Forum Foundation offers a select number of travel grants to enable journalists to report on this compelling networking event for the pinnacle in computer science and mathematics. Grants cover travel costs as well as accommodation during the stay in Heidelberg from September 21-28, 2019.
Until May 20, 2019, journalists from all over the world are invited to apply, irrespective of their media affiliation (print, TV, online, radio). The applications must include the following: a short CV, three samples of work (indicating respective medium), a synopsis of publications to date (indicating respective medium), planned contributions regarding the HLF as well as a preliminary travel itinerary including estimated costs.
Please send travel grant applications to: media[at]heidelberg-laureate-forum.org
Application deadline: May 20, 2019
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 7th Heidelberg Laureate Forum will take place from September 22-27, 2019. The HLFF was established and is funded by the German foundation Klaus Tschira Stiftung (KTS), which promotes natural sciences, mathematics and computer science. The scientific partners of the HLFF are the Heidelberg Institute for Theoretical Studies (HITS) and Heidelberg University. The HLF is strongly supported by the award-granting institutions, the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), the International Mathematical Union (IMU), and the Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters (DNVA).

The Fraunhofer Heinrich Hertz Institute HHI develops next-generation wireless transmission systems (Beyond 5G) based on Terahertz (THz) technologies. The THz technology supports significantly higher data transmission rates than current 4G and 5G mobile wireless technologies. Researchers of the department Photonic Networks and Systems, in collaboration with the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Solid State Physics IAF, have succeeded in transmitting a 4K video in real-time over a wireless THz link. This was the first time this technology was successfully realized in a real-time experiment. A wireless transmission capacity of 100 Gbit/s was demonstrated over the THz link.
Requirements placed on transmission capacities in communication networks are continuously growing, driven by new applications such as Industry 4.0, autonomous...
Researchers from Sweden's Chalmers University of Technology and the University of Gothenburg present a new method which can double the energy of a proton beam produced by laser-based particle accelerators. The breakthrough could lead to more compact, cheaper equipment that could be useful for many applications, including proton therapy.
Proton therapy involves firing a beam of accelerated protons at cancerous tumours, killing them through irradiation. But the equipment needed is so large and...
A new assessment of NASA's record of global temperatures revealed that the agency's estimate of Earth's long-term temperature rise in recent decades is accurate to within less than a tenth of a degree Fahrenheit, providing confidence that past and future research is correctly capturing rising surface temperatures.
The most complete assessment ever of statistical uncertainty within the GISS Surface Temperature Analysis (GISTEMP) data product shows that the annual values...
Physicists at the University of Basel are able to show for the first time how a single electron looks in an artificial atom. A newly developed method enables them to show the probability of an electron being present in a space. This allows improved control of electron spins, which could serve as the smallest information unit in a future quantum computer. The experiments were published in Physical Review Letters and the related theory in Physical Review B.
The spin of an electron is a promising candidate for use as the smallest information unit (qubit) of a quantum computer. Controlling and switching this spin or...
