IPAM records many of its lectures and makes them available to the public so that a wider audience may benefit from the scientific programs we offer. Since July 2012, IPAM has begun to record most of its lectures. You can access the lectures for a particular program or workshop (such as Materials Defects Tutorials) by following the program link listed below to the relevant workshop schedule. Each speaker is listed along with available slide shows and videos. For public lectures, the link will take you directly to the video. The programs and public lectures are listed in reverse chronological order.

Older videos play on Real Player only; recent videos will play on Flash supported browsers and software.
