Remote laboratories have been seeing increasing utilization, though to date only a small proportion of these incorporate support for collaborative experimentation. Where this support is included the collaborative groups are typically formed in a very ad hoc fashion. In this paper we introduce an approach to managing access of the collaborative remote labs that explicitly address the formation of groups in a way that handles diverse requirements, including those related to pedagogic, operational, and organizational considerations. The approach uses policies that can draw on aspects such as student meta-data, rig availability, and group dynamics to automatically perform the allocation of students to groups. We discuss the general architecture for the system as well as example of the policies that may be applied.
