Inclusion of the ACM Prize in Computing recipients increases number of HLF Laureates

    Awardees of the Association for Computing Machinery’s (ACM) prominent award will become HLF Laureates.

    The Heidelberg Laureate Forum Foundation (HLFF) is pleased to announce that all recipients of the ACM Prize in Computing join the ranks of laureates invited to the Heidelberg Laureate Forum (HLF). Following the 4th HLF this past September, a unanimous decision to include the prize recipients was reached by the HLFF and the award granting institutions: the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), the International Mathematical Union (IMU) and the Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters (DNVA).

    The Heidelberg Laureate Forum is an annual networking event that unites the laureates of computer science and mathematics with brilliant, precisely selected young researchers from around the globe for a week of intensive exchange. All recipients of the ACM Prize in Computing will be cordially invited to attend the 5th Heidelberg Laureate Forum next September 24-29, to profoundly interact with fellow laureates and young researchers in computer science and mathematics.

    The history of the ACM Prize in Computing: Ten years ago, the ACM established the Infosys Foundation Award in Computing Science to “recognize personal contributions by young scientists and system developers to a contemporary innovation that, through its depth, fundamental impact and broad implications, exemplifies the greatest achievements in the discipline.” The prize was commonly referred to as the Infosys Award and was accompanied by funding from Infosys. Due to the award’s eminence, it has been renamed the ACM Prize in Computing and funding from the Infosys Ltd. has been raised to $250,000.

    Significant developments in the wake of the 4th HLF, from the HLFF being joined by two substantial scientific partners to the HLF Laureates expanding with the inclusion of the ACM Prize in Computing recipients, have sparked excitement and heightened anticipation for the 5th Heidelberg Laureate Forum.
