32A. Activities and findings
33
34The control framework was selected ealier in the summer.  In the roughly one month since we ahve been funded, working code has been contributed to the project by Battele and Wake Forest. Significant progress was made on merging the Hive Mind concept to the details of ProtoGENI.  Details on this are contained in the design spec (deliverable S2.b).  Preliminary experiments have been performed. 
35
36Assuming Year 2 funding, our next steps will be partially conceptual -- continuing to refine the model with the ProtoGENI testbed that it will be implemented on, following commentary from BBN and UofUtah -- and partially engineering, implementing the system and running experiments to have a working demo by GEC9.  We are also in the process of website to increase project awareness.  This is in the process of being created and hosted at PNNL.
