Abstract : GravitationalWaves (GWs) are expected to be emitted in association with Gamma-Ray Bursts (GRBs). In this context, we are analyzing data collected by the Virgo interferometer during 2005 to develop a method aimed to search for coincidences between GW bursts and GRBs. Our analysis is currently focused on Virgo C7 run and the long GRB 050915a, observed by the Swift satellite. The goal of such analysis is either to identify significant events around the GRB trigger time or, in the absence of such events, to set a limit on the strength of the associated GW emission. This study is a prototype for evaluating Virgo capability in constraining the GW output associated with a typical long GRB. Here we give an overview of the procedure we are following in our analysis.
