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 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.

 

The 7th ET meeting was be the 2nd-3rd of February, 2016, hosted by the beautiful Villa Finaly in Florence (Italy). Here it is the web site of the event.

The 4th ELiTES general meeting was held on the 2nd and 3rd December 2015 in Tokyo. The meeting has been anticipated because of the 7th ET Symposium in Florence.

The session of the 2nd of December was hosted by the Tokyo Institute of Technology, in the lecture theater at Tokyo Tech. The second day was hosted by the Delegation of the European Union to Japan.

 

The first GraWIToN school is organised at EGO from the 20th of April to the 8th of May, 2015. Registration web site is available and open here.
