An announcement from the Computing Community Consortium:
November 5, 2007
Zegura to Chair GENI Science Council
Ellen Zegura, Professor and Chair of Computer Science at the Georgia Institute of Technology, has been named Chair of the GENI Science Council (GSC).
The GSC was established by the Computing Community Consortium in February 2007 to articulate a visionary and compelling research agenda in networking and related fields, with a particular focus on topics that might require substantial shared research instrumentation such as has been envisioned as GENI, the Global Environment for Network Innovations.
Previously, Zegura co-chaired the GSC with Scott Shenker from UC Berkeley. For personal reasons, Shenker is stepping down as Co-chair, but he will remain a member of the GSC.
The Computing Community Consortium congratulates Ellen, and thanks both Ellen and Scott for their contributions — past and future! — to the GSC.

Update: Zegura has also written a handy guide (pdf) to GENI that helps lay out the case for the project. Definitely worth a read for anyone interested in learning what GENI proposes to accomplish.
