Revered mathematicians and computer scientists converge with 200 young researchers in Heidelberg!

17.04.2019

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.

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

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 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).

Im Focus: Accelerating quantum technologies with materials processing at the atomic scale

'Quantum technologies' utilise the unique phenomena of quantum superposition and entanglement to encode and process information, with potentially profound benefits to a wide range of information technologies from communications to sensing and computing.

However a major challenge in developing these technologies is that the quantum phenomena are very fragile, and only a handful of physical systems have been...

Im Focus: A step towards probabilistic computing

Working group led by physicist Professor Ulrich Nowak at the University of Konstanz, in collaboration with a team of physicists from Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz, demonstrates how skyrmions can be used for the computer concepts of the future

When it comes to performing a calculation destined to arrive at an exact result, humans are hopelessly inferior to the computer. In other areas, humans are...

Im Focus: Recording embryonic development

Scientists develop a molecular recording tool that enables in vivo lineage tracing of embryonic cells

The beginning of new life starts with a fascinating process: A single cell gives rise to progenitor cells that eventually differentiate into the three germ...

Im Focus: New teeth: Highly rigid – and ready for immediate use

Significantly improved glass ceramics

The demands placed on a dental prosthesis are high: it should look natural, endure accidental biting on cherry pits – and if possible, the patient should be...

Im Focus: Researchers take a step towards light-based, brain-like computing chip

Researchers from the Universities of Münster (Germany), Oxford and Exeter (both UK) have succeeded in developing a piece of hardware which could pave the way for creating computers which resemble the human brain. The scientists produced a chip containing a network of artificial neurons that works with light and can imitate the behaviour of neurons and their synapses. The network is able to “learn” information and use this as a basis for computing and recognizing patterns. As the system functions solely with light and not with electrons, it can process data many times faster than traditional systems. The study is published in “Nature”.

A technology that functions like a brain? In these times of artificial intelligence, this no longer seems so far-fetched - for example, when a mobile phone can...
