There is a nice EE Cep campaign website for the August 2014 eclipse now up!
Right now there is not much photometric coverage from the western hemisphere. And near infrared observations before, during and after eclipse would be really valued. Absorption lines from shell material could be detected months before eclipse (and that's right now!).
Not mentioned on the web site is the prediction (by Galan
et al. 2012's) that the 2014 eclipse should be a deep one compared to the last two. Two groups will be trying to see if it is possible to detect molecules in absorption during eclipse.
