GENI Tutorial at SIGCSE 2014

Join us for a GENI tutorial at SIGCSE 2014 in Atlanta!

Intended Audience

  1. Faculty and students working in areas of computer networking, distributed systems and cloud computing, that would like to use a large-scale testbed in their class
  2. Anyone that is interested in Future Internet Architectures, Distributed cloud computing or just wants to get acquainted with GENI, a platform for running network experiments and gain hands-on experience in using it.

The Global Environment for Network Innovations – GENI – is a suite of research infrastructure rapidly taking shape in prototype form across the United States. It is sponsored by the National Science Foundation, with the goal of providing a laboratory environment for networking and distributed systems research and education. It is well suited for exploring networks at scale thereby promoting innovations in network science, security, services and applications.

GENI has been used in over a few dozen Networking, Distributed Systems and Cloud Computing classes of undergrad and graduate level. Workshop attendees will leave with all the knowledge they need to run a class using GENI including:

  • a GENI account
  • sample assignments
  • tips for successfully running a class
  • resources for training teaching assistants

The workshop will be taught by Sarah Edwards of the GENI Project Office.
