Paper Abstract

Since its implementation by the IAU General Assembly in Prague, IAU Commission 54 (Optical and Infrared Interferometry) has spawned several working groups on scientific and technical issues common to all interferometers. Work on these topics is therefore of benefit to the community, and we will report on the status of the working group on interferometric calibrators. Active tasks include resources and tools necessary to make informed decisions on calibrator selections, as well as feedback mechanisms on suitability of calibrators for specific purposes.
