     10=== RSpec workshop ===
     12Tuesday, July 20, 9am - noon
     14Organizer: [ Ilia Baldine], RENCI
     16''Description to be provided.''
     18=== BGPmux tutorial ===
     20''__Bringing Internet Connectivity to Your GENI Experiment__''
     22Tuesday, July 20, 9am - noon
     24Organizers: [ Nick Feamster], Valas
     25Valancius, and Yogesh Mundada, Georgia Tech
     27This tutorial will demonstrate how to connect a virtual network to the BGP
     28Mux facility.  Currently, the BGP Mux is deployed in a few locations, and
     29we are adding more.  The tutorial will show a demonstration of a connected
     30virtual network and how one can perform BGP routing from within a virtual
     31network to control inbound and outbound traffic.
     33We will show (very rough plan):[[br]]
     34* Motivation and background for BGP Mux (~ 45 minutes)[[br]]
     35* Connection of a virtual network to the BGP Mux via OpenVPN (~ 15 minutes)[[br]]
     36* BGP configuration (~ 15 minutes)[[br]]
     37* Demonstration of traffic control experiments (~ 15 minutes)[[br]]
     38* Open Questions / Discussion[[br]]
    12 Day3 - 5hrs - Thurs, 7/22 - 1pm-6pm
    13   - '''!OpenFlow tutorial''', Brandon Heller[[BR]]
    14   - '''SPP tutorial''', Jon Turner[[BR]]
    15   - '''ABAC mini-workshop''' (3hrs), Steve Schwab[[BR]]
     42=== Seattle GENI tutorial ===
     44Tuesday, July 20, 9am - noon
     46[ Justin Cappos], University of Washington, Seattle
     48In this workshop we describe how to use an peer-to-peer testbed called
     49Seattle (Million Node GENI).  Seattle provides researchers with access
     50to computers with diverse OS types, mobile devices, nodes behind NATs
     51/ firewalls, and other types of diversity not commonly seen in other
     52testbeds.  Today, Seattle consists of resources on more than 2500
     53computers worldwide, including a significant number of home machines.
     54This workshop will describe how Seattle can be used in different
     55research and educational scenarios. 
     57We will give an overview of Seattle as a development environment and
     58guide the audience in building and deploying simple Seattle
     59programs. We will review available Seattle utilities including
     60developer tools, educational assignments, and tutorials.
     63=== ProtoGENI tutorial ===
     65Tuesday, July 20, 9am - noon
     67Organizer: [ Rob Ricci], University of Utah
     69''Description to be provided.''
     71=== OpenFlow tutorial ===
     73''__Innovating in Your Network With OpenFlow: A Hands-on Tutorial__''
     75Thursday, July 22, 1pm - 6pm
     77Organizers: [ Brandon Heller], Masa
     78Kobayashi, KK Yap, and Yiannis Yiakoumis, Stanford University
     80You may have seen an OpenFlow-based demo at a past SIGCOMM or GEC
     81event.  This tutorial is your opportunity to gain hands-on experience
     82with the same platforms and debugging tools used to build these
     83award-winning demos, as well as a number of research projects.
     85Following an introduction, each participant will turn the provided
     86NOX-based hub into an Ethernet switch, then a flow-based switch, and
     87finally a firewall or router - your choice. Along the way, you'll
     88learn the full suite of OpenFlow debugging tools: you'll view flow
     89tables with dpctl, dissect packets with Wireshark, visualize with
     90LAVI, slice with FlowVisor, and simulate a multi-switch, multi-host
     91network with Mininet on your laptop.  After the tutorial, you can
     92apply what you've learned in the provided VM-based software
     93environment to physical networks based on software switches, NetFPGAs,
     94or even hardware switches at line rate.
     96The only requirement is to bring a laptop; no experience is required. 
     99=== SPP tutorial ===
     101''__Building Experimental Networks Using the Supercharged Planetlab Platform__''
     103Thursday, July 22, 1pm - 6pm
     105Organizer: [ Jon Turner], Washington University, St. Louis
     107This tutorial will provide an introduction to the Supercharged Planetlab
     108Platform, now deployed as part of the GENI infrastructure.  The tutorial will
     109include background on the various hardware and software components and
     110the roles they play, plus a detailed description of the tools available
     111to users to reserve resources and configure resources to carry out an experiment
     112or demonstration. It will also include demonstrations showing the SPPs in
     113action and a hands-on session during which participants will have an opportunity
     114to work with the SPPs themselves.
     116=== ABAC mini-workshop ===
