Call for Sessions

For the upcoming GENI Engineering Conference 23 (GEC23), proposals are solicited for sessions and tutorials.

  • Sessions can be presentation, discussion, or a community working meeting.
  • Tutorials should have an interactive, hands-on component but they can be a combination of presentation, interactive workshop, and hands-on training.
    • In addition, we are looking for volunteer helpers for all tutorials from Mon-Wed (June 15-17) and a small number of instructors for the introductory sequence on Monday (June 15).

Session leaders, tutorial instructors, and helpers from US institutions who need assistance with travel costs will receive priority for Travel Grants.
