How does/would this collaborative activity benefit the LSC and Virgo?

Could confirm and localize a GW event candidate, and provide additional information about its source.

Are there other individuals/groups who could provide similar benefits?

RObotic telescopes, good sky coverage If so, what is the scientific and/or practical justification for pursuing this particular collaboration?

Are any joint proposals planned to be submitted, e.g. for funding or for telescope time?

If so, indicate what will be proposed, to what agency or entity, and who will be listed as the investigator(s).

Describe any paper(s) which will/might result from this collaboration

What preliminary studies (if any) have been done or are currently being done?
