    v29 v30  
    8383Once you receive an email verifying that we have created an account for you (this may take awhile), you can follow the [wiki:SignMeUpPortal#CheckifyoucanuseyourInstitutionsaccount above instructions] but as your Institution use 'GENI Project Office'.
    85 == 2. Become a member of  a GENI Project ==
    86 Now you should be able to login to the portal. However, in order to run experiments in GENI you would need to join or create a project. If you are:
    87   * a faculty member
    88   * or a senior technical member in a company or a university
    89 you can become a Project Lead and [#a2b.CreateaGENIProject create your own projects].
    91 Everyone else should join a project created by a Project Lead. You can ask any of your collaborators that fit the above criteria to create a project for you [#a2a.JoinaGENIProject to join].
    93 === 2a. Join a GENI Project === 
    94 After a project is created, you can try and join the project. In order to do that, do the following:
    97 {{{

    101       <tr>
    102         <td>
    104         <img border="0" src="" alt="Create a GENI Project"  width="400" title="Join a GENI Project" /> </a>
    105        </td>
    106        <td >
    107          <ol>
    108             <li> In the <i>Home tab</i> click the <b> Join Project</b> button.</li>
    109            <li> From the list of projects find the one that was created for you or your class and click the <b>Join </b> button. <br/>
    110 Please make sure you select the right name.</li>
    112           </ol>
    113        </td>
    115     </tr>
    116  </table>
    117 }}}
    119 === 2b. Create a GENI Project ===
    120 A GENI account has no privileges outside of a Project; i.e. as long as you are not a member of a GENI Project you can not use any GENI resources. In GENI only Project Leads can create Projects. Any faculty member, or a person in a corresponding position in industry, can request to become a Project Lead and thus have the capability of creating GENI Projects.
