Abstract

(Abstract only) The observation of variable stars has a long tradition in the Czech Republic. I will briefly introduce the activities within the Czech Variable Stars and Exoplanet Section of the Czech Astronomical Society. However, I will mainly focus on introducing a newly established group dedicated to the observation of pulsating stars and exoplanets that was founded in cooperation with citizen astronomers and students at the Masaryk University, Brno. I would like to attract the attention of American observers and will show how our project can benefit from a joint effort.
