20 years ago it was realized that robotic observatories boost the capabilities of astronomical observations of non-stationary and short-lived phenomena in the Universe. Such facilities built throughout the world allowed to discover and study the prompt emission of the gamma-ray. Hundreds of supernovae were detected as well which enabled to infer the existence of the energy of the cosmic vacuum. Additionally, the robotic telescopes discover thousands of new minor bodies of the solar system and many of exoplanets.

     The first Russian MASTER robot-telescope was developed in 2002 and installed nearby Moscow. It was the effective platform for methodology and technical studies devoted to optimise the use of small robotized telescopes with  the unique software needed for automated multipurpose astronomical observations and real-time full reduction process.   

   MASTER Global Robotic Net was developed in Lomonosov Moscow State University by our team as the fully robotic telescopes, that allows to solve the problems described above. AO MU Optic mastered the production of such systems.

    This conference is devoted to the 15-th anniversary of MASTER Global Robotic Net project. It will be  a good opportunity to talk about  the results achieved by Robotic Observatories in next area: GRBs, SNs, CVs, AGN & BL Lac objects, Gravitational Waves  (LIGO/VIRGO)  and High Energy Neutrino Follow Up Electromagnetic Observations - ICECube and ANTARES.
