Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings

66th Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting, 26 June - 1 July 2016

This year´s Lindau Meeting is dedicated to the Nobel Prize discipline of physics. Topics range from particle physics and cosmology to quantum technology. The programme of lectures, master classes, panel discussions and panels will be available by March/April 2016.

32 Nobel Laureates have already confirmed their participation. Among them will be the 2015 Nobel Laureates in Physics Takaaki Kajita and Arthur McDonald. Approximately 400 young scientists from more than 80 countries may expect an invitation; the selection process will be completed by the beginning of March.


Dialogue between the luminaries of science and the next generation of top researchers has been at the centre of the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings since 1951. On the occasion of the 66th Lindau Meeting, more than 30 Nobel Laureates and 400 excellent young scientists from approximately 80 countries will come together in the Southern German town of Lindau - to share their knowledge and experiences, to gain inspiration and motivation, and to expand their contact networks.


The Lindau Meetings attract large interest, also among science journalists from around the globe: Every year, up to 100 journalists from 40 countries register for accreditation with intent to cover the meeting.

Accredited journalists have free access to all lectures and panel discussions of the programme. In addition, there will be plenty of opportunities for informal exchange with the meeting participants on the fringes of the sessions as well as during the social events. With the assistance of the organisers, journalists can take advantage of a variety of interview appointments with selected laureates, young meeting participants and guests.
