Description: The Fifth European Radio Interferometry School (ERIS) was hosted by Astron and JIVE in Dwingeloo, the Netherlands, between 9-13 September 2013. The event was sponsored by RadioNet, the host institutes, the DAGAL Network and the University of Groningen, as well as by the Leids Kerkhoven-Bosscha Fonds (LKBF) in the Netherlands.

ERIS has provided a week of lectures and tutorials on how to achieve scientific results with radio interferometry. 84 regular participants attended the event, together with tutors and helpers. In total we have accommodated about 100 people. The lectures and tutorials took place in the brand new Auditorium in the new building of Astron/JIVE. The topics ranged from low-frequency to mm radio astronomy, from connected element interferometers to very long baseline interferometry. The social events included a conference dinner at Westerbork, a visit to the LOFAR core, and a football match.
