Proposal Preparation !

That pretty much sums up the last 4 weeks of my life.   GENI Solicitation 3 proposals are due by 5pm tomorrow.  The IU GlobalNOC is leading or partnering on several different proposals for various parts of the solicitation.  I'm personally working on 2 proposals, PI on one and Co-PI on the other.

I'm looking forward to getting back to "normal" after tomorrow and there's no shortage of other work to be done.  We're evaluating our options for 2011 router refreshes for both IU and I-Light.  Our pilot of the Summer of Networking internship program went extremely well and we're already preparing to continue, improve and hopefully expand the program for next year.  We're also working on a plan to expand the hands-on network training opportunities for networking staff both at IU and other universities.  GEC9 (9th GENI Engineering Conference) will be here before you know it and I suspect the preparations will kick into high gear after proposals are submitted tomorrow !
