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.
