Beginning in 2006, SITN offers audio recordings of its seminars! So, even if you can’t make it to the lecture, you can still hear the entire presentation on the web. You can download each seminar as a .mp3 audio file along with the lecture slides in .pdf format. You can listen to the seminar on your computer with any mp3-compatible media player such as Windows Media Player, iTunes or on your iPod. To view our slides you’ll need Adobe Acrobat Reader, available for free from .
