About the blog

Welcome to the HLF Blog


The 4th Heidelberg Laureate Forum (HLF), a week-long symposium for and by a number of the best contemporary mathematicians and computer scientists, took place September 18 – 23, 2016.

The HLF brings together the brightest minds in their fields to gather in a European hotspot of science: the famous and historic city of Heidelberg. Abel, Fields, Turing and Nevanlinna laureates meet 200 selected international young researchers for a conference week full of inspiration and opportunities. The scientists spend the week participating in discussions and exchanging new ideas and concepts in the fields of mathematics and computer science.

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.
