About The Forum

About The Forum Conference Elements Plenary Lectures Laureates hold plenary lectures, generally in the morning sessions. The choice of the lecture subject is entirely up to the speaker. Therefore, topics range from technical subjects to science and education or politics. Postdoc Workshops Postdoc young researchers are invited to apply to present a workshop. Together with fellow young researchers, selected groups will jointly hold workshops during the HLF. Each workshop is mentored by a laureate or member of the Scientific Committee. Poster Session The poster session advertises the scientific work of the young researchers. All PhD candidates are invited to contribute to this session. 38

About The Forum The Hot Topic This session is an interactive discussion among a panel of experts who dive into a consequential, contemporary issue in order to confront difficult questions and perhaps come away with original answers. The purpose of the session is to increase awareness in an area where progress made in mathematics and computer science has an especially profound impact on society. Visits to Institutes and Companies Young researchers are offered the opportunity to visit various research institutes and companies that are located in and around Heidelberg. These excursions help the young researchers to enlarge their occupational network and to learn more about the research sites and working conditions of Germany’s south-west. Social Events Extraordinary social events give all participants the opportunity to meet outside the academic surrounding. This part of the HLF is an important and crucial aspect for young researchers to get to know each other and to make new friends. During the HLF, the beautiful landscapes and scenery of the Rhine-Neckar region are discovered. 39
