Description

Since fall 2011 the Virgo collaboration has undertaken a major detector upgrade aiming to make the sensitivity of the Advanced Virgo gravitational-wave interferometer a factor 10 better than that of initial Virgo. 2015 should mark the completion of the Advanced Virgo construction and the restart of an intense commissioning activity. This talk will present the status and outlook of Advanced Virgo.
