Oak Ridge Associated Universities (ORAU) would like to let PhD graduate students and post-docs in computer science and mathematics know about an opportunity to apply for one of 200 spots to participate in the Heidelberg Laureate Forum (HLF), an annual networking event. The HLF offers all accepted researchers the opportunity to personally interact with the laureates of the most prestigious prizes in the fields of mathematics and computer science. For one week, the recipients of the Abel Prize, the ACM A.M. Turing Award, the ACM Prize in Computing, the Fields Medal, and the Nevanlinna Prize engage in a cross-generational scientific dialogue with young researchers in Heidelberg, Germany. The application period for the 8th HLF closes February 14th, 2020 at midnight. Young researchers at all phases of their careers (undergraduate/pre-master, graduate PhD or postdoc) are encouraged to complete and submit their applications online. For more information, please visit: www.heidelberg-laureate-forum.org.


Strategic Planning for Your Life series continues on January 29 from 5–6:30 p.m. in Student Union 262A with “Career Options and Destinations”.

There’s no need to register, but if you’d like to register to get information about the series and materials from the sessions, you can do so at tiny.utk.edu/strategic-signup.
