About the blog
Welcome to the HLF Blog
The Heidelberg Laureate Forum (HLF) is a week-long networking conference bringing together the best contemporary mathematicians and computer scientists.
The HLF unites highly talented young researchers (undergraduates, PhD candidates and postdocs) in mathematics, computer science and closely related disciplines with the foremost scientists in their research fields for an informal and intellectual exchange in Heidelberg.
The Forum hosts brilliant mathematicians and computer scientists in the historic and scientifically renowned city of Heidelberg. Each year, in the last complete week of September, laureates of the Abel Prize, the ACM A.M. Turing Award, the ACM Prize in Computing, the Fields Medal, the IMU Abacus Medal and the Nevanlinna Prize are invited to meet 200 selected young researchers from all over the world for a conference week full of inspiration and opportunities.
In our blog, you may find background stories of the HLF, the laureates and young researchers, as well as interviews, selected quotes of the day and much more. Throughout the year, our bloggers contribute pieces on a wide variety of issues related to mathematics and computer science.
All attendees are welcome to blog with us as guest bloggers. Just send us an email.
Please also read our ‘Netiquette‘ for discussions between users, guests and editors.
