Premiere: Exhibiting at the AAAS 2016 Annual Meeting

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.

  • As a German citizen, Lindau alumna and professor in the US, I would love to join but will miss out on the meeting as I will actually be in Munich at the same time.
    Enjoy this great get-together! I am still in touch with several of the people I met in Lindau and hope that one of mys PhD students or postocs will attend at some point!

      Dear Olivia, what a shame you can´t make it to Washington to see our AAAS presentation. However, it´s great to hear that you are still in touch with other Lindau alumni, we are currently working on professionalising our alumni network and will definitely get back to you in this regard. All the best, and enjoy your trip to Munich.
