                         the data collected by the LIGO and Virgo detectors between July 7, 
                         2009 and October 20, 2010: data are analyzed when at least two of 
                         the three LIGO-Virgo detectors are in coincident operation, with a 
                         total observation time of 207 days. The analysis searches for 
                         transients of duration less than or similar to 1 s over the 
                         frequency band 64-5000 Hz, without other assumptions on the signal 
                         waveform, polarization, direction or occurrence time. All 
                         identified events are consistent with the expected accidental 
                         background. We set frequentist upper limits on the rate of 
                         gravitational-wave bursts by combining this search with the 
                         previous LIGO-Virgo search on the data collected between November 
                         2005 and October 2007. The upper limit on the rate of strong 
                         gravitational-wave bursts at the Earth is 1.3 events per year at 
                         90\\% confidence. We also present upper limits on source rate 
                         density per year and Mpc(3) for sample populations of 
                         standard-candle sources. As in the previous joint run, typical 
                         sensitivities of the search in terms of the root-sum-squared 
                         strain amplitude for these waveforms lie in the range similar to 5 
                         x 10(-22) Hz(-1/2) to similar to 1 x 10(-20) Hz(-1/2). The 
                         combination of the two joint runs entails the most sensitive 
                         all-sky search for generic gravitational-wave bursts and 
                         synthesizes the results achieved by the initial generation of 
                         interferometric detectors.",
