Update: Here is a working link for video streaming:
Next week you can watch two videoconferences. They will be streamed live from Stockholm University to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the founding of its Institute for Economic Studies.
The first conference is a “Nobel Symposium on Growth and Development”. It begins Monday, 3 September, at 9 am and ends Wednesday, 5 September at 3:10 in the afternoon.
The second conference, “Climate and the Economy”, begins Wednesday, 5 September, at 3:50 pm and ends Saturday, 8 September at 6:45 in the evening.
Programme details, and links for streaming video, are available here.
Each paper has an assigned discussant, and a small number of papers and slide presentations are already posted.
For those with time constraints (which is almost everyone), please note that the organisers have scheduled three panel discussions on Wednesday, 5 September. On that day you will have the opportunity to listen to a large number of very important economists in three short time slots.

All times are Central European Summer Time (GMT +2), which is inconvenient for those of us in Asia or the Americas, but very convenient for everyone in Europe.
I assume that videos will be available for downloading after the conferences, and will post an update as soon as I have information.
