The 8th ET Symposium is hosted by the Institute of Gravitational Wave Astronomy at the University of Birmingham. The focus of the meeting is on the strategies toward a global 3G GW observatory network. What is the future of the GW astronomy and astrophysics? Should a 3rd generation observatory be a unique global infrastructure? Is possible to have a mixed network of infrastructures composed by a 3rd generation observatory and a series of advanced detectors?
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. In case you want to present a talk, please contact the organisers.
