Vienna Gödel Lectures

Named after the famous mathematician and introduced in 2013, the Vienna Gödel Lectures bring world-class scientists to Vienna.

Kurt Gödel (1906-1978), Austrian-American logician, mathematician and philosopher.

The lecture series illustrates the fundamental and disruptive contribution of computer science to our information society. It investigates how our discipline explains and shapes the world we live in—and thereby our lives as such. Since Donald E. Knuth (Caltech), one of the most influential computer scientists, gave the series’s inaugural lecture in 2013, we invited some of the most distinguished scientists to give the annual lecture.
