[30.04] Optical to GeV Observations of Blazars: No Pain, No Gain.

M. T. Carini (Western Kentucky University)

Mutliwavelength observations of Blazars provide important clues as to the nature of the emission process responsible for the observed high energy emission. In fact, such observations have been shown to be vital to our understanding of the physics at work in these objects. However, the organization and implementation of multiwavelength campaigns is non-trivial. I will describe the most important organizational and technical issues that need to be faced when organizing such observing efforts, as well as describe current and planned resources that can provide temporal coverage on timescales of weeks to months.
