Abstract
NESTOR is an underwater neutrino astrophysics laboratory to be located in t he international waters of the southwest of Greece. The first phase of this experiment is the construction and deployment of one hexagonal tower consi sting of 168 optical modules, with effective area of 20000m(2) for E greate r than or equal to TeV neutrinos. Over the past few years detailed studies of the site have been carried out while many tests have been performed. The current status of the preparation of the experiment and the future plans w ill be presented.
