Heidelberg Laureate Forum 2014 |

So last year I was privileged to attend the 2nd Annual Heidelberg Laureate Forum, which is a phenomenal conference where I got to meet 24 Fields Medalists, Turing Award Winners, Abel Prize Winners, and Nevanlinna Prize Winners, some of the top awards for ground-breaking computer science and mathematics research. Each of these awards is the equivalent of the Nobel Prize.

Anyways, I have finally gotten my act together to post some pictures from the event. I may have some more coming soon, or maybe not.  Also, this is a longer post than normal.  Sorry about that.
