Abstract:
This paper describes the GLORIA system (GLObal Robotic telescope Intelligent Array), the first worldwide network of robotic telescopes, which covers four continents with seventeen telescopes, and can be extended. The network architecture has been designed taking into account the functionalities offered to the community, the number of telescopes, users that will be managed and network compatibility with all kinds of robotic telescopes. Different kinds of experiments have been designed to support the various requirements of astronomers. In order to manage the user access to the network resources, an evaluation system, called karma, has been defined which will operate according to some established policy.
