A b s t r a c t . New determination of the Earth orientation parameters (EOP), based on optical astrometry observations since the beginning of the century, is now under preparation by the Working group established by Commission 19 of the IAU. The Hipparcos catalog is to define the celestial reference frame in which the new series of EOP are to be described. The novelties of the prepared solution are the higher resolution (5 days) and more parameters estimated from the solution (celestial pole
