We present a report on the very low latency search being developed in view of the LIGO S6 and Virgo VSR2 science runs, for signals from coalescing compact binary systems with total mass from 2 to 35 solar masses. The goal of this search is to provide both single detector triggers and multi-detector coincident triggers with a latency of a few minutes, the former for online detector monitoring and the latter to allow to issue alerts for pointing telescopes in order to search for electromagnetic counterparts to possible gravitational wave candidates.
