The Virgo status

Abstract : The Virgo detector now running with its full laser power is going through its final step of commissioning. We report on the last year activities: this includes the commissioning work done to bring the instrument to the target sensitivity after a shutdown period and the data analysis effort to search for the most promising sources of gravitational waves. The data analysis teams are now mainly focusing their effort on real data and have improved their understanding of the interferometer's sources of noise. Finally, we will describe the near-term plans for Virgo upgrades.
