Paper Abstract

Presented in this contribution are results gathered by Pi of the Sky during LSC-Virgo O1 science run. Pi of the Sky took part in LSC-Virgo's Electromagnetic (EM) Follow-up project during first science run of Advanced LIGO detectors between September 2015 and January 2016. LSC-Virgo's EM Follow-up is aimed for searching electromagnetic counterparts to gravitational wave transient candidates. Observing an event both in EM and gravitational wave band might be a important step forward to multi-messenger astronomy. The aim of this paper is to show algorithms used by Pi of the Sky for analysing data taken during the first science run and to present the corresponding results. Concepts of algorithms for the next science run will also be discussed.
