Paper Abstract

The "Pi of the Sky" project is an attempt to create fully autonomous system for detection and analysis of optical flashes in the sky at the time scale of seconds, which are connected with gamma ray burst (GRB).

Application of web services technology for data analysis in the experiment is discussed.
