Paper Abstract

The IRAM 30 m telescope is located in the Sierra Nevada mountain range, 50 km to the south of the city of Granada/Spain, at an altitude of 2900 m. More than 100 scientific projects are executed every year by about 200 visiting observers. Since 1990, observations can be made from the Granada office in a way very much like on the telescope. Since 1998, such remote observing is also possible from the IRAM headquarters in Grenoble, France. About 5 percent of the time the telescope is controlled from these remote stations. We plan to install additional remote observing stations in order to facilitate a more flexible telescope scheduling.
