Isfahan National Workshop on Binary Variables (2012)

Greetings to IOTA/ME Workshop
On behalf of the International Astronomical Union it is a pleasure for me to greet you, the members of the IOTA, at your workshop in Esfahan. Astronomy is the most widely practiced international science and it is the one science where amateurs make important contributions to our science and the understanding of the universe. Amateur and professional astronomers work together to bring the discoveries of the cosmos to all people in a way that they understand that human life developed from the complex objects that make up the solar system, stars, and gas in our Galaxy.
The work of the IOTA in making careful measurements of timing phenomena and occultations helps us make more accurate models of the structure of astronomical objects. Your data are used in many papers by professional astronomers to support their calculations. The IAU appreciates your work and supports your interest in observing the sky and gathering and archiving accurate timing measurements.
We wish you an interesting and successful meeting in Esfahan, with continued success in all your astronomical activity.
Best regards,
Robert Williams (President, International Astronomical Union)
