Monday's Snapshots

The Virtual HLF got off to a successful start with the Opening Gala making clear that traversing separation is a global effort. Anja Karliczek, Federal Minister of Education and Research and Theresia Bauer,  Minister of Science, Research and the Arts Baden-Württemberg, greeted the participants and emphasized the importance of networking events especially during the pandemic.

A broad selection of sessions, from interviews with the laureates who were awarded most recently, to informal conversations with computing pioneers generated plenty of take-aways. Several laureate talks kept the viewers intrigued, with a few even having a live Q&A preceding the lecture. Here you can find some snapshots that offer a closer look at the program.

Leslie Lamport (ACM A.M. Turing Award 2013): "What advice would you give to the young researchers?"

Tony Hoare (ACM A.M. Turing Award 1980): : "Enjoy. Have fun. If you do not enjoy it you will not endure the long periods of work."
