Prospects for GW transients in early Advanced LIGO and Virgo science runs

Advanced LIGO (aLIGO) and Advanced Virgo (AdV) are kilometer-scale
gravitational wave (GW) detectors that are expected to yield the first

direct observations of gravitational waves. I will   describe the

currently projected schedule, sensitivity, and sky
localization accuracy for the GW detector network in the next decade.
