GENI Working Groups

Working groups are the locus of technical work required to develop the GENI architecture and design. They will author and review requirements and design documents and evaluate software and services contributed by Working Group (WG) members (some of which may be sponsored by the GENI Project Office). Working groups are expected to provide input to integration activities, design bake-offs, and other prototyping tasks.

Emphasis is placed on technical contribution, including expression of the research community's needs and use cases, regardless of the source of financial support. Academic, industrial, and government lab participants are encouraged.


All working groups are led by one or two Chairs and a System Engineer. They are overseen by the GENI Engineering Architect (GEA).

WG operations, decisions and their rationale will be transparent, recorded in meeting minutes and open archives. WG decisions will, in general, be made by rough consensus as judged by the WG chair.

The WG System Engineer acting as the representative of the GENI Project Office will be responsible for helping the working group understand the needs and constraints of the project office and the working group is expected to be responsive to these needs and constraints in their activities. In the event the GPO modifies or rejects a WG recommendation, the rationale will be provided to the WG.

Mailing lists and wiki pages

Working group mailing lists are hosted by the GENI Project Office. Archives for WG mailing list archives will be public. In general, anyone may join any public mailing list. However, the GPO may limit sending privileges of list members who, in the view of the WG chair and SE, are abusing the list.

GENI working groups maintain a wiki page with the names and contact information of the chair and WG SE; subscription instructions for the mailing list; charter; scope; milestones; deliverables; meeting schedules; and links to working and published documents.
