Robyn Goldsmith, a STOR-i PhD student, has been selected to attend this year’s Heidelberg Laureate Forum.

Held annually during September in the German City of Heidelberg, the Forum sees the recipients of the most prestigious awards in mathematics and computer science – the Abel Prize, ACM A.M Turing Award, ACM Prize in Computing, Fields Medal, IMU Abacus Medal and Nevanlinna Prize, meet selected young researchers from across the world. There are only 100 places for mathematicians, and a further 100 places for computer scientists at the Forum.

The week-long event sees participants interacting and networking in a relaxed atmosphere designed to encourage scientific exchange, and provides an opportunity to connect with scientific pioneers and learn how the laureates made it to the top of their fields.

Laureates give lectures on subjects of their choosing and these become starting points for discussions between the laureates and exceptional young researchers, with the event intending to motivate and inspire the next generation of scientists.

Robyn, whose research area is in forecasting and inventory optimisation, said: “I am very grateful to have been selected for the Heidelberg Laureate Forum! The cross-generational and interdisciplinary aspects of the event are really unique and exciting. I am looking forward to connecting with other young researchers in mathematics and computer science as well as pioneers of the scientific community. I am thankful for the support of STOR-i, which makes my attendance at this event possible, and Jon Tawn for encouraging my application.”
