Here it is the link to the event: LSC-Virgo Meeting.


The 8th ET Symposium will be hosted by the Institute of Gravitational Wave Astronomy at the University of Birmingham from 27th to 28th of March, 2017.
The first day of the meeting will be focused on the crucial tchnologies for 3G observatories, the morning of the 28th of March will focus on the science motivation for 3G and finally in the 28th afternoon we will discuss about the 3G and ET future, organisation and strategy.
Registration opens on the 22nd of February 2017. Here it is the link to the event: 8th ET Symposium.




FEBRUARY 11th: Scientists to provide an update on the search for gravitational waves
100 years after Einstein predicted the existence of gravitational waves, the European Gravitational Observatory (EGO) and the VIRGO Collaboration invite the scientific community at the EGO site in Cascina, Pisa (Italy) for an update on efforts to detect them

The website of the 5th ELiTES meeting (Final meeting) is online:

The meeting will be held at the Delegation of the European Union to Japan, in Tokyo, and at Toyama University, in Toyama, Japan, from the 8th to the 10th of January, 2017.

During the first day of meeting, it will be hosted a public lecture by Takaaki Kajita (Nobel Prize in Physics in 2015).

The annual ET symposium is organised the next 2-3 February, in Florence, Italy. You can find all the logistic information in the web site of the event.
That event will be the first joint ET-LIGO 3G meeting, focusing on possible future scenarios, the scientific targets and strategies, the enabling technologies needed to realise the 3rd generation GW observatories.
The meeting will be organised around few selected talks allowing long discussions and a poster session is expected.
The structure of workshop is the following:

  • Tuesday 2nd, Morning: Global scenario
  • Tuesday 2nd, Afternoon: Technologies
  • Wednesday 3rd, morning: Global scenario and roadmapping

The workshop is preceded by a meeting focused on the next H2020 call on integration of research infrastructures to be held in the afternoon on February 1st.
