2012-05-22: Heidelberg Laureate Forum – Abel, Fields, and Turing Laureates meet the next generation

Starting in September 2013, the “Heidelberg Laureate Forum” will bring together winners of the Abel Prize, the Fields Medal, the Nevanlinna Prize, and the Turing Award with young scientists from all over the world. The meeting will be held in Heidelberg, it is established and sponsored by the Klaus Tschira Foundation and organized in collaboration with the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM; Turing Award), the International Mathematical Union (IMU; Fields Medal and Nevanlinna Prize), and the Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters (DNVA; Abel Prize). The meeting is modeled after the annual Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings established more than 60 years ago. Press releases (in English and in German) of the event in Oslo, where the cooperation was established today, outline the plan in more detail.
