Information on GENI experiments and available GENI resources for experimenters is available at GeniExperiments. A support list for experimenters can be found here.

Old Announcements


Future GENI Engineering Conferences. The GEC is the GENI Project Office’s (GPO) regular open working meeting where researchers, developers, industrial & international partners and the GPO meet to advance infrastructure planning and prototyping for the GENI project. Further, the GEC focuses on how to design and build a suite of infrastructure that can best inspire and support creative research. The conference is open to all. The dates and locations below should be considered mostly firm until registration opens.

GEC10 March 15 - 17, 2011 Univ. Puerto Rico & Polytechnic Univ. Puerto Rico, San Juan, PR register
GEC11 July 26-29, 2011 Northwestern Univ., Chicago, IL

Past GEC and Other Meetings

Design Activities

The GENI design and prototyping community is working together to agree on the key functions and interfaces needed to meet GENI's requirements. Pointers to GENI design collaborations organized around GEC meetings are provided here: GENI Design Activities.

Spiral 3 Projects

The GENI Project Office currently funds in design and prototyping and meso-scale deployment. Project technical information, schedules and milestones, and information from related projects can be found here: Spiral Three.

Campus & Backbone Connectivity

There are multiple options for connecting experimental networks in GENI; the choice depends on your experiment needs, existing networks, and possibilities for new connections. How-tos, background, and recommendations to help you set up GENI connections and experiments can be found here: Connectivity Home.


The GPO publishes system engineering and integration documents specifying the GENI design, integration, and operations. Documents are review by the community via mailing list discussion and at GENI Engineering Conferences before being adopted by consensus. A list of published documents can be found here: GPO Docs.

Adopted Recommendations

GENI Recommended Use Policy. This document communicates common guidelines for using the suite of GENI infrastructures to the GENI community. GENI participants should be willing to follow the guidelines, and to support GENI community efforts to implement this policy. (GENI-INF-RUP-01.1) PDF

Wiki Docs: GENI is using the Trac wiki and issue tracking software package. All GENI members currently share a single wiki. For help with the Trac software, including pages that explain how to format wiki text and create new pages, TracGuide is a good place to start. Please contact for help, changes, or problems with this site.

Permissions: You must log in to the project wiki before you can edit any page. See wiki:GeniWikiGettingStarted for how to get a login. Most pages in the wiki are editable by any logged-in user. This page (WikiStart) is a read-only page (admins can read and write). Project milestones can only be edited by the GPO. Contact a GPO member or if you want to make changes to this or any other read-only page.
