IAU GA Reports on IBVS

The Information Bulletin on Variable Stars was set up at the IAU GA at Berkeley, in 1961, and the first issue was published in the same year, under the editorship of L. Detre. The reports of Commission 27 (and later, Commission 42 reports too) in the volumes of "The Transactions of the IAU / Reports on Astronomy" usually contain information on IBVS.


The Electronic IBVS benefited from various grants and the work of several people, and the use of various software packages. The list of contributors and software used can be found here.
