Dr. Bushra Anjum invited to attend the 1st Heidelberg Laureate Forum, Germany
Dr. Bushra Anjum, FAST Lahore Campus, is selected as one of the 200 qualified young researchers in the fields of mathematics and computer sciences who were chosen by the Scientific Committee to attend the 1stHeidelberg Laureate Forum, which will take place from September 22 until 27, 2013 in Heidelberg, Germany.
Until February 15, 2013 young researchers in the fields of mathematics and computer science were given the chance to apply online for the first Heidelberg Laureate Forum. Roughly 600 young researchers answered the call for applications. The Scientific Committee of the Heidelberg Laureate Forum selected the 200 most talented applicants and notified the successful applicants in May, 2013.
The Heidelberg Laureate Forum offers the extraordinary opportunity to meet some of the pre-eminent scientists in mathematics and computer science to a select group of young researchers. During the week-long event, they will be able to get to know recipients of the most prestigious prizes for mathematics (Fields Medal and Abel Prize) and computer science (Turing Award).The Heidelberg Laureate Forum will take place from September 22 until 27, 2013 for the first time and will be held annually thereafter. Lectures and workshops offer plenty of opportunity for scientific exchange, while a rich variety of social events encourages the young researchers to engage in casual conversations with their scientific role models.
The Forum has been initiated by the Klaus Tschira Stiftung (KTS) and the Heidelberg Institute for Theoretical Studies (HITS). It will be organized in collaboration with the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM; Turing Award), the International Mathematical Union (IMU; Fields Medal) and the Norwegian Academy for Science and Letters (DNVA; Abel Prize).
