To celebrate the beauty and importance of mathematics and its essential role in everyone’s life the International Mathematical Union (IMU) has led the project to have UNESCO proclaim March 14 as the International Day of Mathematics (IDM). Today, on November 26th 2019, the 40th General Conference of UNESCO approved the Proclamation of March 14 (Pi Day) as the International Day of Mathematics.Read more
Heidelberg Laureate Forum invites young mathematicians and computer scientists
The preparations for the 2nd Heidelberg Laureate Forum (HLF) are in full swing, and applications from young researchers to attend the second Forum are still accepted! The Heidelberg Laureate Forum Foundation (HLFF) is looking for outstanding young mathematicians and computer scientists from all over the world who would like to get the chance to personally meet distinguished experts from both disciplines and find out how to become a leading scientist in their field. Applications for the one of the sought-after spots at the Forum will be accepted until February 28, 2014.
The 2nd HLF will take place from September 21 to 26, 2014. It will once again bring together winners of the Abel Prize and Fields Medal (mathematics) as well as the Turing Award and Nevanlinna Prize (computer science) for an inspiring week in Heidelberg, Germany.
Successful candidates will be selected by an international committee of experts that will ensure only the most qualified candidates are invited. The young researchers attending the first Forum were from a total of 49 countries. There are 100 spaces available for each discipline of mathematics and computer science.
For more information, go to www.heidelberg-laureate-forum.org.
Applications are submitted online at: http://application.heidelberg-laureate-forum.org.
IMAGINARY and the Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach support this forum. We are currently also planning a possible IMAGINARY exhibition and media project during the Heidelberg Laureate Forum.
The Heidelberg Laureate Forum (HLF) was started by the Klaus Tschira Stiftung (KTS), a foundation which promotes natural sciences, mathematics and computer sciences, and the Heidelberg Institute for Theoretical Studies (HITS). The Forum is being organized by the Heidelberg Laureate Forum Foundation in cooperation with the Forum’s founders as well as the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), the International Mathematical Union (IMU) and The Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters.
