10:05 Review of Cluster D Spiral 1 goals and completion tasks, as defined on June 11.

10:15 Review of Spiral 2 GENI goals and Cluster D Spiral 2 Roadmap Process

(see attached power point files and, and attached current roadmap document

Next, each PI(s) will review their project. PLEASE bring no more than 6 slides to review:
1) Progress in year 1
2) Challenges in year 1
3) Progress towards integration with ORCA clearinghouse (broker) at RENCI per Spiral 1 plan (attached)
4) Progress towards connection of your facility with Internet2 backbone network (also NLR at RENCI)
5) Plans for experiments by outside GENI researchers by end of Spiral 1
6) Plans for Spiral 2 (year 2)

And, for each project, the GPO will review:
7) Current milestone status, using the wiki

10:25 ORCA/BEN project wiki slides (Ilia Baldine, Jeff Chase)

Progress against milestones

  • Planning to make ORCA a production capability for BEN; two issues: will the software work? and will there be sufficient documentation that people can use it?
  • Can ORCA be used to request connections to I2? Yes, working with Chris Tracy. More than one way to do it. Could create an ORCA AM for I2. Complicated by I2's work on their next-gen network architecture. Working with John Volbrecht at I2
  • Experimenters in mind for spiral 1? Mostly Keren Bergman, already share cluster & interests. More detail later today. Other experimenters will need patience and expertise. Plan to take a cautious approach.
  • Could move faster with more funding.
  • Could GPO help with documentation? Maybe a little but probably not.

11:00 DOME project wiki slides (Brian Levine, Mark Corner, Brian Lynn)

11:30 ViSE project wikislides (Prashant Shenoy, Michael Zink, David Irwin)

12:00 Lunch

1:00 Kansei project slides(Anish Aurora, Rajiv Ramnath, Hongwei Zhang)

1:30 Measurement project wiki slides (Keren Bergman, Franz Fidler)

2:00 Discussion of Cluster D integration thru end of Spiral 1

Current summary view, combining all projects (see attached word document and power point file
What are the biggest challenges? What coordination process should be used?

2:50 Break

3:00 Discussion of Cluster D Spiral 2 roadmap tasks, grouped by Spiral 2 goals

(the attached current roadmap document which has been updated) Rating (H, M, L) of each for importance Rating (H, M, L) for each for difficulty How close are we to consensus?

4:00 Adjourn

As you can see, we need to stick closely to this agenda if we are to finish with the information we need. And, PLEASE bring no more than 6 slides for each project.

Please send me your comments or questions. I am looking forward to our meeting on Thursday!
