29### A. Activities and findings
30
31We demonstrated our Hive Mind prototype at GEC13.  Concurrently, we are also making progress on implementing a user portal for configuring and monitoring the Hive Mind system.  Currently the Hive Mind is controlled and monitored via a series of shell scripts.  We are creating a web-based interface to interact with these scripts and the logs that are output by the Hive Mind, which drive the monitoring dashboard.  This interface will be ready in beta form by our next July 27 milestone.

53### E. Collaborations this period
54
55Our project is now collaborating closely with the "Attribution for GENI" project (PI: M. Bishop, UC Davis).  Together, we are working toward shared goals, using shared project resources.
56
57We also are working with staff at the DETER project, who are facilitating our implementation and experimental work on DETER, and with Rob Ricci, who is facilitating our implementation and experimental work on ProtoGENI.  We are grateful to the staff at both projects for their valuable help.
