ACM has joined forces with the newly created Heidelberg Laureate Forum (HLF) at http://www.heidelberg-laureate-forum.org/ to bring students together with the very pioneering researchers who may have sparked their passion for science and math. These role models include recipients of the Abel Prize, the ACM A.M. Turing Award, and the Fields Medal.
The first Heidelberg Laureate Forum will take place September 22-27, 2013 in Heidelberg, Germany. The week-long event will focus on scientific inspiration and exchange through a series of presentations, workshops, panel discussions, and social events involving both the laureates and the young scientists.
The HLF invites new and recent Ph.Ds, Ph.D candidates, and other graduate students involved in research, and undergraduate students with solid experience in, and a commitment to, computing research to apply.
Young researchers can apply online: https://application.heidelberg-laureate-forum.org/intern/reg_registration_for.php The materials required for a complete application are listed on the site.

The deadline for applications is February 15, 2013. Successful applicants will be notified by April 15, 2013 and will receive full support to attend the Forum.
