GEC Demo Submission

This page describes what you need to do to submit a demo request to participate in the Evening Demo Session at the GENI Engineering Conference (GEC). Please pay attention to the submission deadline date posted on the demo wiki page, as we work with many vendors as well as our gracious campus hosts in advance to ensure we have adequate equipment and resources for the demo, and we cannot accept late or incomplete requests.

NOTE: We will distribute the demo description paragraph in the template below to all GENI attendees to help people find the demos they are most interested in seeing, so it is important to write a compelling and accurate description. If you have done demonstrations before, make sure to highlight what is different about this demonstration compared to previous ones. Indicate in your description who really should see the demo and why (e.g. "Network providers that support OpenFlow should see this tool demonstration because it will let them manage limited bandwidth efficiently.")

Here's how to submit a Demo Request using a GENI ticket:

  1. Log in to the GENI wiki( using your GENI wiki user ID and password to create a ticket. If you don't have or don't remember your userID or password, please email
  1. Use this URL to create a demo request ticket:

  1. Copy the request template below and paste it into your request ticket:
    Demo description paragraph.

    List of equipment that will need AC connections (e.g. laptop, switch hardware prototype, monitor). (Just put in the number of connections needed if your demo description already lists the equipment)

    Total number of wired network connections (wired IP AND VLAN conenctions).
    Number of wired layer 2 VLANs.  Specify VLAN number, if known, approximate bandwidth, and whether tagged or untagged.

    Number of wireless network connections (include required bandwidth if significant)

    Number of static addresses needed (if any)

    Monitor (y/n, specify VGA or DVI) (Specify resolution only if your software has resolution restrictions.)

    Number of posters (max size poster boards are 30" x 40")

    Special requests (include any specific network connectivity needs (e.g. VLANs to a particular GENI location, projects you'd like to be located near, etc.)


We expect most demonstrations will integrate two or more projects, so please make sure you mention any other collaborating teams in the text of your ticket. The tickets will help us locate collaborating teams near each other in the demo space as much as possible.

Posters will be mounted on stands near the demo tables. The maximum poster board size is 30" x 40." Half size posters (30" x 20") are encouraged if the contents allow.

You can request standard ( 32" ) or large monitors ( 42" ) for your demo as needed. Due to the added expense, please request large or high-resolution monitors only if your content requires it. We'll do our best to accommodate your request.

Here are more detailed instructions:

When you are entering data for your demo ticket:

  • Select your Project Name from the drop-down list for the ticket "Component" field.
  • Leave the "Milestone" and "Dependencies" fields blank, which is the default.
  • Include anyone who should get email updates on the ticket in the "Cc" field. You will automatically get updates on the ticket.

The GPO will update your ticket when we confirm that the resources you need are available, and will use the ticket for any further communications about your demo. We often get more demo requests than we can accommodate, and we will inform you via the ticket a few days after the deadline if your request is not selected for the event.

If you have any trouble creating or using a ticket, please email and we'll make sure your information is entered.
