Proceedings of the Workshop on Improvements to PhotometryThe purposes of the workshop were to determine what astronomical problems would benefit by increased photometric precision, determine the current level of precision, identify the processes limiting the precision, and recommend approaches to improving photometric precision. Twenty representatives of the university, industry, and government communities participated. Results and recommendations are discussed.
