Abstract : The largest interferometric detectors for gravitational waves, LIGO and Virgo, have reached (or are close to) the design sensitivity and have started taking science data. The operation of such detectors is reviewed and the expected sources and detection rates are discussed. LIGO and Virgo might make the first detection, but more advanced detectors will be needed to truly open the field of gravitational wave astronomy: the current ideas and plans for the upgrades of the existing interferometers are presented.
