Zegura to Chair GENI Science Council

[GENI has been superseded by NetSE]

WASHINGTON, DC, November 5, 2007

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 The University of California at 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.
