This September 24–29, at the 10th Heidelberg Laureate Forum (HLF), 200 young researchers in mathematics and computer science will spend a week of scientific exchange with the recipients of the disciplines’ most prestigious prizes: the Abel Prize, ACM A.M. Turing Award, ACM Prize in Computing, Fields Medal, the Nevanlinna Prize as well as its continuation, the IMU Abacus Medal. Below are a few highlights of the upcoming program of the HLF as well as a breakdown of how to cover this unique event.
More than 30 laureates
Having over 30 groundbreaking and award-winning researchers in mathematics and computer science in one venue is not only a thrilling prospect for the next generation of scientists attending the 10th HLF, but for anyone who has an interest in these subjects and the pioneers they have produced. Livestream their lectures and panel discussions on the HLF website or catch them at your leisure on our YouTube channel, which is regularly updated.
200 of the brightest young minds in their fields
The HLF provides 200 selected young mathematicians and computer scientists from all around the world the opportunity to engage and exchange ideas with a vast network of peers and laureates from diverse backgrounds, all brimming with enthusiasm. Find out what drives the young researchers, what motivated them to pursue a career in mathematics or computer science and what they see as the greatest challenges of today. Leading up to this year’s HLF, we are shining a light on a select few of these young researchers in our HLFF Spotlight series, which will feature weekly releases on our HLFF Blog as well as several podcast episodes. Be sure to also check out some of the fascinating Spotlight articles and episodes from past HLFs!
A milestone anniversary
The HLF will be celebrating its tenth anniversary and continues to innovate. Alongside traditional lecture formats, this year’s HLF will feature several new program formats: Shorter “Spark Talks” will inspire and spark discussion amongst the audience. In “Lightning Talks”, laureates will be limited to one slide, where they will present a single idea, breakthrough, research question or even a piece of advice to attending young researchers.
The week will also feature several special events commemorating and celebrating the HLF’s tenth anniversary.
At the cutting edge of science and development
In addition to an array of topics surrounding developments in mathematics and computer science, a special focus will be on the increasingly captivating topic of artificial intelligence. This includes a panel on “Generative AI” as well as another posing the question “How Do We Ensure AI Benefits Humans?” with panelists such as the noted Vinton G. Cerf, known widely as one of the “fathers of the Internet”. A full overview of the scientific program can be found on the HLF’s website.
Broad, up to date coverage will be made available on the HLFF Blog thanks to a team of bloggers that will focus on various program aspects. You can also follow live coverage via X (formerly known as Twitter) @HLForum or by following #HLF23. The 10th HLF will also be accompanied by regular episodes of the HLFF Vlog, published on the HLF’s website and YouTube channel, featuring exclusive, behind-the-scenes glimpses of the program, speakers and attendees.

The Heidelberg Laureate Forum Foundation (HLFF) annually organizes the Heidelberg Laureate Forum (HLF), which is an international networking event for mathematicians and computer scientists. The 10th Heidelberg Laureate Forum will take place from September 24 to 29, 2023. The HLFF was established and is funded by the German foundation Klaus Tschira Stiftung, which promotes natural sciences, mathematics and computer science. The scientific partners of the HLF are the Heidelberg Institute for Theoretical Studies (HITS) and Heidelberg University. The HLF is strongly supported by the award-granting institutions the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), the International Mathematical Union (IMU) and the Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters (DNVA).
