I am going
to suggest the IAU Division V and Commission 27 a draft of a new GCVS classification scheme. I understand that a discussion of these scheme cannot be completed (and even seriously started) here and now. I will distribute a number of printed copies of the suggested scheme. It will also be available, after the GA,at the GCVS
web site (http://www.sai.msu.ru/groups/cluster/gcvs/) .
We will start applying the scheme in the nearest future but are ready to take into account the future C27 suggestions, probably to be finally approved during the next GA of the IAU.
