Press Release - May 10, 2017

*Application deadline extended for travel grants; Journalists engage with
brilliant mathematicians and computer scientists!*

*Journalists are encouraged to apply until May 31, 2017, for one of the 15
travel grants to cover the 5th Heidelberg Laureate Forum. *

*This September, **recipients of the Abel Prize, the ACM A.M. Turing Award,
the ACM Prize in Computing, the 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 5th Heidelberg Laureate Forum (HLF). In addition to
providing 15 travel grants, the Heidelberg Laureate Forum Foundation (HLFF)
extends an open invitation to all journalists around the world who are
interested in reporting on the 5th HLF to register online. This invitation
creates a unique opportunity for journalists to cover the Forum and to
associate with the preeminent scientists of mathematics and computer
science. 24 laureates have already confirmed their participation in the 5th
HLF, which will take place from September 24–29, 2017. Applications for the
coveted travel grants are accepted until May 31, 2017.*

The HLF offers a carefully selected group of young researchers in
mathematics and computer science the extraordinary chance to meet the most
renowned scientists in their fields for one week of cross-generational
scientific dialogue. What distinguishes the HLF from traditional
conferences is the unique social atmosphere that inspires a blend of acute
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. Embedded
once again into the program is the Hot Topic session, which is especially
interesting for the media. At the 4th HLF in 2016, the focus revolved
around Artificial Intelligence (AI) and a panel of experts addressed the
costs and benefits created by developments brought on by AI. The theme for
the session in 2017 at the 5th HLF will delve into quantum computing, more
information will be available soon on the HLF homepage:

The Heidelberg Laureate Forum Foundation offers 15 travel grants of up to
3,000 euros to enable journalists to report on this compelling networking
event for the pinnacle in computer science and mathematics. Grants cover
the travel costs as well as board and accommodation during the stay in
Heidelberg (starting with a media-get-together on the evening of September
