IAS public lectures aim to attract and stimulate lively discussion. Lectures, often tied to a longer visit to UWA by a distinguished visitor, are part of the University's long-standing goal to share the research activity at UWA with the community at large. 

The Institute also sponsors a number of named, endowed or memorial lectures each year with both internal and external partners.

Many of our talks were recorded and the audio file and slides can be viewed
