    1515'''Slice:''' A slice is the context for a particular set of experiments, and contains reserved resources and the set of GENI users ('members') who are entitled to act on those resources. A slice belongs to a single project, and can have multiple members. Experimenters can add and delete resources from a slice.

    17 '''Slice Credential:''' A signed statement from a GENI federation slice authority indicating that a given experimenter has particular rights to operate on a given slice. Such credentials have a specified expiration date. Aggregates receiving the credential will authorize operations only as permitted by the credential and only for the life of the credential.

    1919'''Slice Member:''' Many experimenters may view or act on a slice. Each experimenter with such privileges is said to be a 'member' of the slice. Experimenters must be a member of the project containing the slice before they can be a member of the slice. Within the slice, experimenters may have varying permissions, including having read-only access to the slice. For more information on Slice Roles/privileges, see [wiki:ProjectSlicesRoles here.]
