Early registration Second Summer School of Astronomy IOTA/ME (2014), which lasted seventeen days, finished. Through 293 people who filled the Initial Registration Form, 48 numbers of them, after examining based on scientific level required summer school, selected as an admitted primary and admitted ultimate after finally registration process, will attend the summer school. It should be noted, as mentioned in the first announcement, because this program is workshop and to raise the scientific quality of the school, the school's capacity was 39 people. Most of admitted are physics graduate students in particular M.A level.

Specific Workshop Associate Members of Eclipse Department of IOTA/ME was held on Friday, August 24 of the year 2014 at Geophysics Institute of Tehran University. This workshop was held during 5 hour and taught by Dr. Bahman Hussein Zadeh about pulsating stars physics, observation and data phases of variable stars, using IRAF software and answer to questions from members about eclipse department projects.

Discontinuous Members specific workshop of IOTA/ME was held on 14 and 23 August of the year 2014 in Geophysics Institute of University Tehran. This seasonal workshops was held for teach discontinuous Members. And during last workshop, members know with scientific and executive methods activities in IOTA/ME, and knowing about in the form of project includes transit observations of Exoplanets, types of variable stars and the observation and analysis them and astronomical occultation. At the end of the workshop, members choose their favorite department and then the projects will be implemented over the next year. Members at the end of a year of their projects in the form of a paper and type of seminar in front of members of the Scientific Committee will provide each department.

Second ISI paper of the Iranian permanent members of IOTA/ME was published in the New Astronomy journal with the help of Iranian Space Agency (ISA). This paper entitled New Light Curve Analysis and Period Changes of the Overcontact Binary EQ Tauri is compiled by Farida Farsian, Maryam Nemati and Amir Hasanzadeh from Eclipse and Variable Stars department.

Abstract
A photometric CCD study of EQ Tauris was carried out in the R, V and B bands. These new data were analysed by using the PHOEBE and Binary Marker 3 programs, which yielded the geometrical system parameters and mass and radius of both stars. We find these to confirm the results of Pribulla and Vanko (2002). Using these new data together with data from the literature, the orbital period variations were studied by using the Kalimeris method. We find the same timescale of variability of the orbital period as Pribulla and Vanko (2002), namely about 49 years.
