The 3rd scientific workshop of the SVOM mission has been organized from May 13 to May 18 at Chamonix Mont-Blanc (Ecole des Houches;

The operation of the gravitational wave detectors opened a new era for the observation of the transient sky. The objective of this workshop was to review the merging of compact objects both theoretically and observationally.

Based on these discussions, workshop participants tried to refine the SVOM observation strategy in the case of Target of Opportunity request in response to a gravitational wave alert.

All presentations are now on line and available for consultation here .
