The Virgo EGO Scientific Forum (VESF) is launching a new program in the year when Earth-based GW detectors – Virgo and LIGO – are gearing up towards second-generation Interferometers.

The program will include topical courses focused on GW Advanced Detectors. It will offer a unique opportunity for young scientists already active or planning to work in that field, to get an in-depth training on specialized and state-of-the-art topics related to this research, like: science case, interferometer configuration, suspensions, thermal compensation, sensing and control, squeezing, lasers and more.
