Abstract: The photometric experiment on Hipparcos has led to the discovery of, among other types of variables, a large amount of new Slowly Pulsating B Stars. We have selected twelve bright southern stars of this sample, together with five previously known Slowly Pulsating B Stars, for spectroscopic and photometric monitoring. These seventeen stars have spectral types ranging from B2 up to B9 and thus fully cover the instability strip. We here present the results of a preliminary analysis of our data and show that our sample is an extremely important one to perform seismology of intermediate-massive stars.
