Welcome to the XIV ET Symposium

The upcoming ET Symposium will take place in Maastricht from May 6th at noon until May 10th early afternoon. This symposium gives the chance to unite with colleagues deeply engaged in the Einstein Telescope project and those who share a profound interest in ET. Together, we'll delve into recent advancements and exchange insights while forging lasting connections.

The ET-symposium kicks off on Monday, and offers a rich array of parallel sessions (OSB, ISB, EIB, SPB, etc) and poster presentations housed in the MECC conference center until and including Wednesday. As the week progresses, we'll transition to the historic Sint Jans Church in the heart of the Maastricht city center, where plenary sessions will be held on Thursday and Friday.


Registrants can also participate in every session online via a two-way Zoom connection. Zoom links for each session can be found as an attachment to the session in the Indico timetable.

But, the symposium isn't confined to the timetable of the sessions. We extend a special invitation to join us on May 5, the day prior to the symposium, to explore a scenic geology drilling site of ET (we organize a bus that will leave from Maastricht).
And to kickstart the symposium, join us on the morning of May 6th for a visit to the E-Test project locations in Liege, where the Advanced Mechanical and Optical Systems (AMOS) and the Centre Spatial de Liège (CSL) open their doors (organized bus from Maastricht). 
There is a social event organized specifically for early career scientist on Thursday May 9th. We will meet after the plenary sessions in front of Sint Jans Church and walk towards the river Maas to have a BBQ at Stayokay hostel from 7pm. Register here before Thursday May 2nd and receive your ticket on Thursday before the walk.

There will also be moments where you can experience the ETpathfinder project from the observation lounge, enjoying a panoramic view of an ET test facility cleanroom.
