The Heidelberg Laureate Forum (HLF) is an annual networking event at which young researchers get the chance to mingle with some of the best minds in mathematics and computer science. During a boat trip on the beautiful river Neckar at this year's forum we got the chance to talk to some of these young researchers, who each gave us a three-minute video introduction to their work. Here they are! Click on the links to see the videos.
