Foundation’s Town Hall Meeting on
The Directorate for Computer and Information Science and Engineering (CISE) is planning a new initiative, “Global Environment for Networking Innovations” (GENI), to explore new networking capabilities that will advance science and stimulate innovation and economic growth. GENI’s goal is to increase the quality and quantity of experimental research outcomes in networking and distributed systems, and to accelerate the transition of these into products and services that will enhance economic competitiveness and help to secure the nation's future. Ultimately, the research enabled by GENI is expected to lead to a next-generation of network capabilities and services.
Specifically, the GENI initiative envisions the creation of new networking and distributed system architectures that, for example:
The GENI initiative includes a research program and a global experimental facility designed to explore new architectures, distributed systems and networked applications at scale.
CRA organized the National Science Foundation Town Hall Meetings to gather broad community input about GENI that would be used to further inform and refine the design of the GENI facility plan.
The meetings provided CISE with the opportunity to engage the broader research community in the GENI initiative by:
