    18 ''Note: Participants in this tutorial will benefit from some familiarity with OMF. Attendees with no previous OMF experience should consider attending the OMF tutorial on Monday.''
     16== Abstract ==
    1917
    2018The purpose of this tutorial is to provide hands-on experience with step-by-step guidance in designing and conducting a GENI WiMAX experiment. Participants will learn how to reserve WiMAX resources, configure a GENI WiMAX base station, and develop and execute an OMF experiment using WiMAX-equipped clients.
    2119
     20Active participants will be divided into three groups. Each group will work closely with an instructor to develop a non-trivial experiment in one of these three areas:
     21 * HetNets
     22 * Wireless Sensor Networks
     23 * Education
     24
     25== Prerequisites ==
     26
     27Participants in this tutorial will benefit from some familiarity with OMF. Attendees with no previous OMF experience should consider attending the OMF tutorial on Monday.
     28
     29Attendees are also advised to familiarize themselves with the GENI WiMAX testbeds by making an account at a GENI WiMAX site and running the preliminary experiments (link).
     30
    2231Active participants will need a laptop equipped with an SSH client (such as [http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/ Putty]  for Windows) and a web browser.
     32
     33== 1.  Introduction to GENI WiMAX ==
     34
     35'''Aim:''' Motivation for GENI WiMAX, and brief overview.
     36
     37In this section, we will introduce the motivation for GENI WiMAX sites also give a brief overview of the architecture of the WiMAX testbeds. [[br]] (slides)
     38
     39== 2.  Arrangements for this tutorial ==
     40
     41'''Aim:''' Divide participants into groups for the rest of the tutorial and login to testbeds using assigned credentials.
     42
     43Participants will divide into three groups. Each groups will work closely with an instructor to develop an experiment showcasing the use of GENI WiMAX testbeds for wireless research or education.
     44
     45Participants for each group will login to designated sites using their assigned credentials, to begin the hands-on portion of the tutorial.
     46
     47== 3.  Designing an experiment for GENI WiMAX ==
     48
     49'''Aim:''' Participants will work in groups, guided by an instructor, to develop and execute an experiment to answer a significant research question or serve some educational purpose.
     50
     51
     52The three tracks are:
     53
     54 * HetNets Track: Design an experiment to evaluate a protocol for cooperative recovery over WiFi and WiMAX networks (link)
     55 * WSN Track: Design an experiment that builds a wireless sensor network at one testbed site and transmits sensor measurements over the WiMAX link and the GENI backbone to another site for processing (link)
     56 * Education track: Design an instructional lab experiment for students to run to demonstrate key properties and capabilities of wireless broadband networks (e.g. modulation and coding, ARQ) (link)
     57
     58== 4. Review ==
     59
     60'''Aim:''' Solidify lessons learned and communicate results between groups.
     61
     62A representative from each group will briefly describe the experiment design process and demonstrate the experiment.
