Title: CCD \emph\textbfUBVRI Photometry of Southern Open Clusters

Abstract: We propose CCD, broad-band, multicolor Johnson-Cousins observations of a number of poorly-studied galactic open clusters. The aim is to do good absolute photometry to be able to construct the color-color and several color-magnitude diagrams. The analysis of such diagrams, based on the fitting of theoretical isochrones, will allow us: i) to determine the fundamental cluster parameters; ii) to look for blue-straggler candidates; and iii) to test different evolutionary models.
