Abstract : The interferometric detectors of gravitational waves of first generation are now taking data. A first detection might be possible with these instruments, but more sensitive detectors will be needed to start the gravitational wave astronomy. The interferometers of second generation will improve the sensitivity by a factor ten, allowing to explore a universe volume 1000 times larger. The technology is almost ready and the construction will start at the beginning of next decade. The community of the physicists involved in the field has also started to make plans for third generation detectors, for which a long term technology development will be required. The plans for the upgrades of the existing detectors and the scenario for the evolution of the field will be reviewed in this paper.
