Second Heidelberg Laureate Forum

The Heidelberg Laureate Forum was created by the Klaus Tschira Foundation, the Heidelberg Institute of Theoretical Studies, ACM, the International Mathematical Union, and the Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters to provide an opportunity for young researchers to spend a week with winners of the Turing Award, Abel Prize, Nevanlinna Prize, and Fields Medal.  The first Forum was held this past September and was viewed as a major success by the 40 laureates and 200 young researchers in computer science and mathematics who attended.  Details can be found at


The Second Heidelberg Laureate Forum will be held September 21-26, 2014.


To be considered for the Heidelberg Forum, young researchers (recent Ph.D.’s, Ph.D. candidates, other graduate students involved in research, and undergraduate students with exceptional experience in and commitment to computing research) can either apply directly or be nominated by a colleague (or professor or mentor  or manager) who can attest to the quality of their work.  Nominations will likely carry a bit more weight within the selection process and can be made at but require ACM-specific credentials.  If you or a colleague would like to make a nomination, the ACM “Organization Number” is ACM62954.  Applications and nominations must be completed by February 28, 2014.


The selection of young researchers will be a two-step process.  In the first step the pool of applications and nominations in computer science will be screened and ranked by the ACM Heidelberg Forum Committee.  In the second stage, the top ~30% of applications/nominations will be reviewed by the Scientific Committee of the Heidelberg Forum (on which Jennifer Chayes and Juris Hartmanis represent ACM) to pick the ~200 participants.  Participants are asked to try an secure funding for air fare to Heidelberg from their institution (although if no funding is available, the Heidelberg Laureate Forum Foundation will help).  All expenses in Heidelberg are covered by the Foundation.
