The following website saw its origins in the Multi-Commission Meeting (MCM) held on 11 August 2000 during the XXIVth General Assembly of the IAU in Manchester, UK, and Special Session 3 (SPS3) held on 18 July 2003 during the XXVth General Assembly of the IAU in Sydney, Australia. Following both meetings, type C Resolutions were ratified and following SPS3 a Working Group (WG) was proposed by Commission 26 (under Division IV, formal approval pending) for the implementation of the 2003 Type C Resolution.

The goal of this website is to keep the community informed of progress on this project.
