35----------------------------------------------------
36
37### A. Activities and findings
38
39We demonstrated our Hive Mind prototype at GEC14 and GEC15.   We have also delivered and posted a working version of our software and documentation.  Our development and experimentation work is continuing as we both make the software more robust, usable, and extensible, as well as assess the efficacy of the software for a variety of circumstances.

79### E. Collaborations this period
80
81Our project collaborated closely with the "Attribution for GENI" project (PI: M. Bishop, UC Davis).
82
83We 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.
