Straight to the source: the LIGO-Virgo global network of interferometers opens a new era for gravitational wave science

The Virgo collaboration and the LIGO Scientific Collaboration report the three-detector observation of gravitational waves. This result highlights the scientific potential of a global network of gravitational wave detectors, by delivering a better localization of the source and access to polarizations of gravitational waves.

Einstein Telescope Design Update Workshop is organised the next September 5-8, in Glasgow, UK and it is hosted by the University of Glasgow.

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.




The next LSC-Virgo Meeting will be hosted by CERN in Geneva, from August 28 to September 1, 2017.
