The 2nd annual meeting of the ET design study project has been organized in the "Ettore Majorana centre for scientific culture", Erice (Sicily-Italy), from the 14th to the 16th of October 2009. It has been an important step toward the realization of a conceptual design of the 3rd generation gravitational wave observatory "ET". The progresses in the design Have been reported by the scientists involved in the project and a large fraction of the time has been reserved to the discussion upon the several design possibilities identified in the last year of activity.
