On August 31, 2006 the Global Environment for Networking Innovations (GENI): Establishing the GENI Project Office (GPO) solicitation (NSF 06-601) was released. This solicitation calls for the establishment of a GENI Project Office. The GPO will work closely with the computing research community, and will assume responsibility for the project management necessary to successfully complete all planning, design and development activities, essential to adequately prepare for GENI construction. The Webcast briefing will discuss goals and expectations for the GPO, provide a brief overview of GENI (Global Environment for Network Innovations), and provide an open forum for questions and answers.
