The Fields-Carleton Distinguished Lecture is an annual lecture sponsored by the Fields Institute for Research in Mathematical Sciences and Carleton University (held at Carleton University, Ottawa). The series features internationally-renowned speakers with expertise in mathematics, statistics and theoretical computer science. Each guest speaker delivers a public lecture as well as a research lecture, which is more technical in nature.

This year’s Fields-Carleton Distinguished Lectures will be featuring Dr. Chelsea Walton, Professor of Mathematics at Rice University.
