"Visions of Future Generation Networks"

August 1st - August 2nd 2011, Würzburg, Germany

Mark Berman is Experimentation Director for the GENI Program Office (GPO). Through outreach to GENI experimentalists and advocacy for their requirements, he is responsible for ensuring the successful integration and execution of a rich variety of experiments that make meaningful use of GENI capabilities.

As Vice President for Technology Development at BBN Technologies, Mark works to bring technical innovations into practical use.  He has pursued this goal for more than two decades at BBN, beginning in the 1980s when he participated in a successful effort to bring new user interface technology and AI-based pattern recognition and rule-based systems to bear on a major sensor and processing system for the US Navy.  Since that time, Mark has served as Principal Investigator or Program Manager for several research efforts, with emphases in the areas of user interface and distributed computing. As manager of BBN's Intelligent Computing business, he exercised management oversight over numerous research and technology transition efforts, across a diverse set of disciplines. These include disributed computing tools (e.g., QuO middleware, Cougaar agent infrastructure), learning systems, and game-based training.

Mark holds A.B. and S.M. degrees in computer science from Harvard.  He has twice (1966, 2006) been named Time's Person of the Year (shared).
