About PARC Forum

How to find out about future Forums

Our Forums are announced via email or on one of our social media channels. Follow us or subscribe to our newsletter to find out about the next Forum. We also include all upcoming talks on this page, so you can add individual events to your calendar.

Our PARC Forums are how you can find out about the work we’re doing, interact with our experts, and learn about the latest discoveries and innovations coming out of our Silicon Valley research center.

We’ve been hosting invited speaker Forums since 1977, with some of the most prominent scientists and innovators in the world joining us to exchange ideas and insights. The Forum is a free event that’s open to anyone with an interest in what we do at PARC.

Join in person
Anyone can attend a PARC Forum event in person (minors may attend if accompanied by an adult). The program is free and registration is required. Seating in our auditorium is allocated on a first come, first served basis.

PARC Forums take place in our George E. Pake Auditorium, which is located right off the stairs from our upper parking lot. Parking is available for free anywhere within our lots. Our building is located near the 280 freeway in Palo Alto, California. Forums (including Q&A) begin at 5pm, running until 6pm, with networking afterwards until 6:30pm.

Watch online
If you can’t join us in person you can enjoy a PARC Forum event online. We typically post Forums on our YouTube channel. Or you can watch live on our YouTube Live or Facebook Live. You can also browse our archive of all past PARC Forums on our website.

How we choose our speakers
From Nobel laureates and VC funders to prominent futurists and radio personalities, PARC Forum speakers are always experts in their fields. We look for credible speakers who can deliver interesting and thought-provoking talks. If you have a speaker suggestion, email us at
