     73The GENI experimenter Portal was announced as ready for early adopters. Interested experimenters are encouraged to contact [mailto:portal-help@geni.net portal-help@geni.net] for more information.
     74
     75Tom provided an overview of the portal goals and features. The portal is intended to be a quick starting point for new GENI experimenters and to make it easy to create simple topologies for experimentation. Additionally, the portal has integrated with a few other GENI tools, with more on the way. GENI resources can be allocated via the portal or with the embedded Flack, a slice construction tool from [http://www.protogeni.net/trac/protogeni ProtoGENI]. Tom gave a demo showing how an experimenter accesses the portal for the first time, creates a slice, allocates resources and then uses those resources. The demo incorporated resources from [http://www.exogeni.net/ ExoGENI] and [http://groups.geni.net/geni/wiki/INSTAGENI InstaGENI] racks.
     76
     77Tom also gave a brief review of the GENI Clearinghouse from a developer perspective. The [http://www.geni.net/clearinghouse/api/ Clearinghouse APIs] have been published, the portal and clearinghouse software has a [http://trac.gpolab.bbn.com/proto-ch wiki and issue tracker].
     78
     79There were a few questions about how the portal handles experimenter certificates, but discussion was deferred to the [wiki:GEC15Agenda/CodingSprint coding sprint].

     81Jordan Augé and Loïc Baron presented [http://myslice.info/ MySlice], a web-based experimenter tool developed by !OneLab. They explained the architecture, including adapters for various control frameworks and plugins for display. They also gave a demo showing the features of !MySlice, including the ability to filter through the aggregate advertisements to locate resources with various attributes or capabilities.
