Abstract
The Cherenkov Telescope Array (CTA) will be the next generation of ground-based instrument for Very High Energy gamma-ray astronomy. It will improve the sensitivity of current telescopes by up to an order of magnitude and provide energy coverage from 20 GeV up to 300 TeV. This improvement will be achieved using a total of 19 and 99 telescopes of three different sizes spread out over 0.4 and 4.5 km$^2$ at two sites, respectively, in the Northern and Southern Hemispheres. After a concerted effort involving three different large-scale Monte Carlo productions performed during the last years, here, the baseline layouts for both CTA sites that should emerge after several years of construction are presented.
