The 5th general Einstein Telescope Symposium was a full two day meeting on October 22-23, 2013, held at the AEI in Hannover.

Scope of the meeting was the scientific exchange within the ET scientific community and planning of ongoing activities, like ET R&D and ELiTES. All members of the Einstein Telescope Science Team were welcome to attend, but unfortunately we had to limit the number of participants to a maximum of 60 people due to space constraints.

The event web page is available here.
