Lecturecasts of the Symposium Presentations

You can view lecturecasts of the Symposium presentations from this page. Click on the session above the presentation you wish to view, to load the lecture cast of that session. It was not possible with the present lecturecast system, to extract the individual presentations from each session, so to find the presentation you wish to view, scroll down to the scene number given in brackets. This will take you to just before that presentation begins. If no scene number is given, this is the first presentation of that session.

Note that the presentation given by Professor Sally Price is only available as slides, owing to the lack of sound on this lecturecast.
