    1818   * The unit of isolation for experiments.   A GENI experiment lives in a slice.  An experiment in one slice is isolated from experiments in other slices.
    1919   * A container for resources used in an experiment.  GENI experimenters add GENI resources (compute resources, network links, etc.) to slices and run experiments that use these resources.  An experiment an only use resources in its slice.

    22 An experiment lives in a ''slice'' and experiments in one slice are isolated from experiments in other slices.

    24 
    25 This is possible because of the concept of a ''slice'' in GENI.  A slice consists of GENI resources (compute resources, network links, etc.) and a GENI experiment uses the resources in a slice.

    28 the set of GENI experimenters entitled to act on those resources.  A slice belongs to a single project, and can have multiple members.  A project can have multiple slices.
    29    * Experiments live within slices i.e. they use resources reserved by their slice.
    30    * Slices isolate experiments.  GENI is a shared testbed and slices ensure experimenters do not interfere with one another.
    31    * Experimenters are responsible for their slice and will be held accountable for any adverse behaviors by experiments in their slices.
     20   * A unit of access control.  The experimenter that creates a slice can determine which project members have access to the slice i.e. are members of the slice.  The project lead is automatically a member of all slices created in a project.
