Abstract

The interferometric gravitational wave detector Virgo is undergoing an advanced phase of its commissioning, during which short runs are routinely performed, in which data are analyzed online and offline, searching for signals from coalescing binary systems. In this report we present the progress of the coalescing binaries search activities in Virgo, and we describe details of the detection pipeline including hardware injections, vetoes, and parameter estimation, using recent data taking.
