Remote observations have become a very important and useful observing method

for modern ground‐based astronomy. By extension, the concept of remote control

in astronomy is applicable to space observatories and spacecraft exploration.

The instruments conceived to work in space require special design

considerations and development to be remotely operated. Remote operation

capability requires greater capital investment in both spacecraft

instrumentation and in the ground network receiving stations. Observing modes

of remote instruments generally need to be less complex than the operating

modes of ground‐based telescopes. Streamlining operations learned for space

can be applied to ground‐based programs just as refining techniques on Earth

can be applied to space.

Here on Earth, over the past decade remote observing has brought a very large

democratization to groundbased astronomy; making telescopes accessible to

observers who might otherwise never have access. This success comes from the

hard work of software and instrument engineers, schedulers, and the speed of

the internet.

The goal for this workshop is to bring together researchers involved in

observational astronomy across various fields of astronomy and astrophysics.

The workshop will welcome participants to present science highlights obtained

via remote observing. Most importantly, sharing results and experiences on

the success and limitations of remote observing will generate new ideas for

advancing the technique and its potential science for the next decade.
