FieldsLive: Live Streaming from the Fields Institute

FieldsLive is a streaming system that gives viewers the ability to watch Fields lectures live from anywhere in the world. Developed as a new way for the Institute to work together with our partner universities and the scientific community, FieldsLive makes Fields lectures and courses accessible to a global audience. To enhance the viewing experience, the system has two unique features:
  1. Personalized views: click to zoom in or out or pan from side to side. This feature is particularly useful for blackboard talks, giving viewers the ability to choose which section of the board they want to see.

  2. Interactive remote participation: with just a web browser, webcam, and Flash Player plug-in, participants can ask questions and make comments from remote locations, as if they were present in the lecture room. This is available for select events only (where the speaker is prepared to handle remote questions) and requires a "remote speaking permission code" which must be requested at least two business days prior to the event by sending an e-mail with your name and academic affiliation to

Video Archive

A few days after each lecture, a recorded video will be made available, which can be viewed or downloaded through our video archive.

Live Now

A few minutes before each event, a link will appear here that will allow you to begin viewing or interacting.
