Welcome

ILIAS is a "networking project", pulling together the leading European research centres in Astroparticle Physics, with the purpose of fostering collaboration and research coordination. The Gravitational Waves community has two projects in ILIAS: a networking activity devoted to Gravitational Wave Antennae (GWA) and a joint research activity dedicated to the Study of Thermal-noise Reduction in European Gravitational wave Antenna (STREGA). Further information on GWA and STREGA is available at www.ego-gw.it/ILIAS-GW.

As in the past, we are organising the annual meeting to enable the status of all the activities to be presented. Furthermore the status of GW initiatives within the Seventh Framework Programme such as ET and ILIAS-NEXT will be discussed. This year the meeting will be held at the University of Tuebingen on the 8th and 9th October, 2007. Participation to the meeting will be supported by the European Gravitational Observatory making use of the funds available within the ILIAS project.

All the information concerning the meeting is available on this website. Registration deadline is
21st September, 2007.
