     20=== A. Activities and findings ===
     21The focus of this quarter has been to identify a research area candidate for our GENI experiment. We surveyed some research conducted at four-year colleges in Information Technology (IT) related fields that were of interest to GENI. We narrowed IT research fields of interest to those conducted at four-year colleges in academic departments of Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Information Systems, Information Technology and Biotechnology, in addition to all related departments. We also decided to select a research area candidate for our GENI experiment that will meet, but are not limited to, the following criteria:[[BR]]
     22  * '''Distribution and Team-Based:''' research area conductible over the network by different team across campuses and/or enterprises;
     23  * '''Heterogeneity and Autonomous:'''  research area conductible over the network by autonomous team from heterogeneous research platforms;
     24  * '''Delegation and Mobility:''' research area involving tasks that are delegable over  the network from one remote team to another in addition to providing mobility opportunity for task performance on local on mobile platform on a network node;
     25  * '''Process/Workflow and Componentization:''' research area involving processes or workflows to help ensure quality products or services when tasks are delegated among remote and autonomous teams, with probably different culture, environments and working methods. The componentization aspect should ensure task modularity before delegation;
     26  * '''Organization, Work Regulation and Resources Sharing:''' research area dealing with organizational processes and work regulation in order to ensure and regulate and control resources sharing over network nodes.
     28We fast reviewed IT relate research as defined above from nearly thirty (30) four-year institutions. Very few research areas conducted at those institutions met the minimum criteria above to be candidates for our experiment, except the research conducted by our own team at Langston University in Distributed Software Development. We are currently refining the research area candidate for our experiment to be in “Team-Based Distributed Software Development” over the GENI infrastructure.
