Coincident observation of gamma‐ray bursts and gravitational waves will help us to dramatically improve our understanding of energetic processes in the universe while opening a new window on compact, and often difficult to study, astronomical objects. One of the major goals of interferometric gravitational wave detectors is to develop and exploit gravitational wave detection in conjunction with astrophysical observations. The collaboration among gravitational wave detectors and gamma‐ray burst observatories is ongoing and flourishing. The present status of the collaborative research and the future plans are summarized and illustrated through practical experience with the Laser Interferometer Gravitational Wave Observatory (LIGO) detectors.
