Sarah Cannon and Yan Wang, second year ACO students, have been selected to represent the United States in the 20 person delegation of students and postdoctoral researchers that will attend the 3rd Heidelberg Laureate Forum. The forum, focused on mathematics and computer science, will take place September 23-28 in Heidelberg, Germany. The U.S. delegation is sponsored by Oak Ridge Associated Universities (ORAU) and the National Science Foundation (NSF).
Building on the successful model of the annual Lindau Meeting of Nobel Laureates, the Heidelberg Laureate Forum will bring together approximately 200 students and early-career researchers from around the world with winners of the Abel Prize, the Fields Medal, the Turing Award and the Nevanlinna Prize. The program will consist of formal lectures in the morning and informal meetings during the remainder of the day, giving students and young researchers an opportunity to meet with the Laureates, as well as with their peers from around the world. Participation is by invitation only.
