The Heidelberg Laureate Forum (HLF) is an annual meeting bringing together the winners of the most prestigious international awards in mathematics (Abel Prize, Fields Medal and Nevanlinna Prize) and computer science (ACM Turing Award) with a select group of highly talented young researchers in computer science and mathematics. PhD students and postdoctoral researchers from all over the world can apply for one of 200 coveted spots to interact with their scientific role models during lectures, discussions and various social events. Over the course of a week, the up and coming scientists will have a unique opportunity to engage in inspiring and motivating conversations with the top researchers in their fields. Since its first meeting in 2013, five PhD students and researchers from the BSC attended the Heidelberg Laureate Forum. In this seminar, Fabrizio Gagliardi, former ACM Europe Council Chair and Senior Strategy Advisor at BSC will introduce the Heidelberg Laureate Forum, and BSC researchers Paul Carpenter and Claudia Rosas will share their experiences in attending HLF. The seminar aims to encourage BSC students and researchers to apply to HLF 2017 in order to take advantage of this unique opportunity.
