For the third time, recipients of the ACM A.M. Turing Award, the Fields Medal, the Nevanlinna Prize and the Abel Prize gather in Heidelberg to meet with 200 young researchers from all over the world. For one week, the laureates of mathematics and computer science will exchange with young researchers through lectures and workshops, plus a “hot topic” session discussing the socio-ethical challenges of Big Data. The immense success of the past Forums pushes forward and the organizers once again provide the opportunity for journalists to come to Heidelberg and converse with the preeminent scientists of mathematics and computer science. The 3rd HLF will take place from August 23 to 28, 2015, and applications for the coveted travel grants are accepted until June 30, 2015.
