Abstract

The SB9 Working Group of Commission 30 aims at compiling the 9th Catalogue of Orbits of Spectroscopic Binaries. By definition, this is a never ending task as orbits of newly discovered systems keep appearing in the literature. Despite this, the working group tries to catch up with the delay as nothing was done in between 1989 when the 8th catalogue by Batten et al. and 2000 when the WG was settled. In 2006, at its business meeting, the WG decided to focus on the completeness of systems rather than on completeness of orbits. If the latter is a valuable objective, only the former is useful to any statistical investigation of spectroscopic binaries.
