    33This page introduces GENI concepts and terms you will need to know before you use GENI.  For a glossary of GENI terms, see [https://panther.gpolab.bbn.com/secure/glossary.html].

     5== Project ==
     6A project organizes research in GENI, containing both people and their experiments. A project is led by a single responsible individual: the project lead.  A project may have many experimenters as its members.  An experimenter may be a member of multiple projects.  The project lead is is ultimately accountable for all actions by project members in the context of the project.

     8The following figure illustrates a situation where a professor is a lead for two GENI projects Alpha and Beta.  Each project has a research assistant as one of its members.  The professors and his post-doc are members of both projects.

    510== Slice ==
    6 A slice consists of reserved resources and the set of GENI experimenters entitled to act on those resources.
     11GENI is a shared testbed i.e. multiple experimenters may be running multiple experiments at the same time.  This is possible because of the concept of a 'slice' in GENI.  A slice consists of reserved resources and the set of GENI experimenters entitled to act on those resources.
    712   * Experiments live within slices i.e. they use resources reserved by their slice.
    813   * Slices isolate experiments.  GENI is a shared testbed and slices ensure experimenters do not interfere with one another.
