Computing Community Consortium Blog

The goal of the Computing Community Consortium (CCC) is to catalyze the computing research community to debate longer range, more audacious research challenges; to build consensus around research visions; to evolve the most promising visions toward clearly defined initiatives; and to work with the funding organizations to move challenges and visions toward funding initiatives. The purpose of this blog is to provide a more immediate, online mechanism for dissemination of visioning concepts and community discussion/debate about them.

Screen Shot 2015-11-16 at 2.32.29 PMPreparations for the fourth Heidelberg Laureate Forum are in full swing, and applications from young researchers to attend are now being accepted.

The Heidelberg Laureate Forum was created by the Klaus Tschira Foundation, the Heidelberg Institute of Theoretical Studies, ACM, the International Mathematical Union, and the Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters to provide an opportunity for young researchers to spend a week with winners of the Turing Award, Abel Prize, Nevanlinna Prize, and Fields Medal.  To date three forums have been held (2013, 2014, and 2015), and all have been viewed as a major success by the 40 laureates and 200 young researchers in computer science and mathematics who attended each forum.

The Fourth Heidelberg Forum will take place September 18-23, 2016 in Heidelberg, Germany. Applications will be accepted until February 3, 2016. You can submit online applications here. Successful candidates will be selected by an international committee of experts that will ensure only the most qualified candidates are invited.
