Abstract : This article reviews the situation for robotization of telescopes and instruments at the Antarctic station Concordia on Dome C. A brain-storming meeting was held in Tenerife in March 2007 from which this review emerged. We describe and summarize the challenges for night-time operations of various astronomical experiments at conditions ``between Earth and Space'' and conclude that robotization is likely a prerequisite for continuous astronomical data taking during the 2000-hour night at Dome C.
