     42Lowering the entry cost for experimenters is an important objective to
     43favor the usage of federated facilities, including the ability to
     44provide a transparent access to various valuable tools and services.
     45We present !MySlice (, a slice management tool that
     46provides experimenters with access to the SFA-based federation of
     47testbeds. The tool natively provides the essential SFA functionality
     48while its innovative modular framework easily accommodates
     49community-developed tools that extend this functionality to cover the
     50full experiment lifecycle. !MySlice offers three experimenter-facing
     51interfaces. First, there is a web-based GUI for general users that
     52allows easy incorporation of contributed plug-ins that are built using
     53PHP and !JavaScript. Second, an XML-RPC web services interface caters
     54to power users. Third, a Python core enables developers of experiment
     55control tools to take advantage of !MySlice's built-in handling of SFA
     56authentication and authorization, and RSpec coding and parsing. As an
     57example of !MySlice's extensibility, and its ability to easily
     58interface with a wide range of different tools on the back end, we
     59describe how it integrates !TopHat, an aggregator of data, such as
     60network measurements and system information, that enrich an
     61experimenter's view of his or her slice. As an open source project,
     62!MySlice is being adopted by numerous testbeds, and plug-ins developed
     63for some testbeds are proving useful for others. This is joint work,
     64developed in part under the GENI Understanding Federation grant to
     65Princeton University, The University of Tokyo, and UPMC. Major funding
     66for !MySlice comes from European Union (!OneLab2, NOVI, !OpenLab, FIBRE)
     67and French government (F-Lab) grants, and its development has been
     68accomplished in collaboration with INRIA and other partners of those
