I present an overview of how inspiral-merger-ringdown (IMR) waveforms are currently being used within LIGO and Virgo search efforts. I'll discuss search strategies from the two major astrophysics working groups within t he LIGO/Virgo collaboration searching for transient gravitational-wave signals - the Compact Binary Coalescence group and the Burst Group.
For masses where the inspiral, merger and ring-down phases are prominent in the LIGO/Virgo band both working groups have developed pipelines that are sensitive to these systems and are now trying to work together to make a joint statement about LIGO and Virgo's sensitivity to IMR systems.
