Abstract: A one-year follow-up campaign of high-resolution, high-signal-to-noise spectroscopy for 10 candidate slowly pulsating B stars, which were discovered from the HIPPARCOS astrometric mission, shows that all stars exhibit line-profile variability. From our data, and from the HIPPARCOS photometry, we conclude that all but one of the targets provide evidence of multiperiodicity, with periods of the order of days, confirming their pulsational nature. Thus they are confirmed slowly pulsating B stars. We summarize the pulsation periods and Q-values and select the most interesting targets for very-long-term follow-up observations with the goal of performing asteroseismology.
