First DFG/GENI Doctoral Consortium

The first DFG/GENI doctoral consortium was held March 13-15, 2011, in conjunction with the 10th GENI Engineering Conference (GEC10) in San Juan, Puerto Rico. The consortium was jointly organized by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) and the National Science Foundation (NSF). The co-chairs are Paul Müller of the University of Kaiserslautern and Mike Zink of the University of Massachusetts. Participation is by invitation only.

Conference Attendees

Conference attendees included thirty-two graduate students from universities across the United States and Germany. In addition, a consortium "faculty" drawn from academia, industry, and government was on hand to assist the students in organizing and planning their ideas.

Poster Session

In order to facilitate information exchange, participants held a poster session on Sunday evening. During this session, they made a brief presentation of their research interests and had an opportunity to view others' posters.

Posters and photos from the poster session are available at FirstConsortiumPosters.

Clusters and Experiment Ideas

During the Sunday poster session, participants divided into clusters, based on shared research interests. Over the following day and a half, cluster membership and names were refined. Each cluster proposed a research area, including potential experiments using GENI and/or GLab resources.
