2021 Chameleon User Survey

As part of Phase 3, we’re looking to improve the Chameleon experience and make the system generally better over the next 4 years. This is your chance to guide hardware purchases, influence Chameleon capabilities and change priorities in our roadmap. 

To help us in this effort, we would like to invite you to take this 10-15 minute survey, and share your experiences, desires, pain points and anything else to help us build a better Chameleon for you! The survey will be open till the end of June. 

Thank you in advance for your participation!

Four More Years of Chameleon

We are happy to announce that the Chameleon project has been extended for another 4 years! 

That’s four more years of working with a creative and talented user community that always wants to go someplace impossible – and takes us with them! 

The next four years will bring us integration with IoT, support for more innovative networking experiments, innovative new hardware, and even more support for reproducibility and experiment sharing. Read all about it in: https://www.cs.uchicago.edu/news/article/chameleon-phase-three/

We are SO looking forward to continuing to provide a platform for your research -- and learning about all the hot and cool things …

Chameleon use for COVID-19 projects

Most of you have probably seen the NSF Dear Colleague Letter regarding resource contributions of NSF-funded infrastructure to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) research. We have obtained permission from NSF to join this effort and extend the range of Chameleon supported projects to include projects working on how to model and understand the spread of COVID-19 for a limited time. 

Join Chameleon at SC19

SC19 will be held in Denver, Colorado the week of November 17-22. Chameleon capabilities will be on display in demos, talks, posters, and more.
