For the first time, the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings will be among the exhibitors at the AAAS 2016 Annual Meeting that will take place from 11 to 15 February in Washington, D.C. Together with the Heidelberg Laureate Forum (supported by the Klaus Tschira Stiftung), the Lindau Meetings present themselves as a forum for intergenerational dialogue to an audience of American and international members of the scientific community.
We cordially invite attendees of the AAAS meeting to visit us at booth No. 1829. Here, young scientists will receive information on how to participate in the Lindau Meetings and the Heidelberg Laureate Forum. Representatives of universities and other science and research institutions may learn more on the global academic partner network. For potential supporters, there is detailed information on funding opportunities.
A very special invitation by the German Embassy
Attendees of the AAAS 2016 Annual Meeting are also invited to the following event:
“Meet with Nobel Laureates”
Wednesday, 10 February 2016, 5:30–8:00 p.m.
Embassy of the Federal Republic of Germany
4645 Reservoir Road NW
Washington, D.C. 20007
The reason why Nobel Laureates convene at Lindau every year and laureates of the Fields Medal, the ACM A.M. Turing Award, and the Abel Prize come together at Heidelberg annually is essentially the same: to meet the next generation of leading scientists from all over the world. Both meetings foster the exchange among scientists of different generations, cultures, and disciplines. The German Embassy, together with the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings and the Heidelberg Laureate Forum, invites attendees of the AAAS 2016 Annual Meeting to meet some of the laureates who regularly participate in these meetings. Among them will be Günter Blobel (Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine 1999), William Phillips (shared Nobel Prize in Physics 1997) and Vinton Cerf (ACM A.M. Turing Award 2004). In addition, several young scientist alumni of the Lindau Meetings will also be in attendance. The evening reception bears the opportunity to discuss about fascinating science and international cooperation, to mingle and to enjoy food and drinks. Also on the occasion, the German Embassy presents the exhibition ‘NOBELS and Masters of Abstraction,’ portraits of laureates by German photographer Peter Badge.
