2018 GENI Experimenter Contest
ABOUT THE GENI EXPERIMENTER CONTEST
GENI (https://www.geni.net/) is an open infrastructure for at-scale networking and distributed systems research and education that spans the US. Researchers and educators use GENI for experiments on: network security, wireless networks, distributed systems, cloud technology, software defined radio, datacenter networks, mesh networks, non-IP protocols, content distribution networks, public safety networks, software defined networks, video delivery over networks, network function virtualization, future Internet architectures, cognitive radio, and other topics in networks or distributed systems.
The GENI Experimenter Contest is a chance for researchers who have a novel experiment that runs on GENI to win a cash prize (up to $2000, sponsored by Ciena and Matrix Integration) and a travel grant to CNERT '18 (to be held with INFOCOM '18 in Honolulu, HI) to demo their experiment. (Travel grants are sponsored by the NSF and are not available for winning team members from institutions outside the United States. All winners are eligible for the cash awards, including teams from outside the United States.)
- Teams will submit a short paper (up to 4 pages) describing experiment goals, the details of the experiment, analysis of the data collected, and conclusions drawn.
- Teams also submit instructions and materials to reproduce the experiment on GENI (code, data, RSpecs).
Teams will also present and demo their submission over the Internet for the judges.
- Submission deadline: January 22, 2018.
- Presentations and demos (online): February 2018.
- Winners will demo their work at CNERT, held with INFOCOM in Honolulu, HI: April 2018.

The GENI Experimenter contest is open to anyone who uses GENI, including students, faculty, and industry, inside or outside of the United States. You may enter as an individual, or as a team (of any size).

Questions about the contest? Email email@example.com.
Teams are also invited to consult with a GENI expert who will not be on the panel of judges about their experiment. For example, we can advise you on:
- finding tutorials that teach you how to use relevant capabilities of GENI,
- GENI resources and utilities that are available to support your experiment,
- how to "port" an existing experiment to GENI,
- how to scale up an experiment on GENI,
and similar matters. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to set up consultations by email, phone, or video chat.
