About

The seL4 Summit 2022 is the fourth edition of the international summit on the seL4 microkernel, the world's most highly assured OS kernel.

The first three seL4 Summits were organised by the Trusted Computing Center of Excellence, and were hosted in the US.

The seL4 Summit 2022 is the first to be organised by the seL4 Foundation, established in 2020.

Summit organisation and hosting is based on these principles.

Location & Host

The seL4 Summit 2022 will be held in Munich, Germany (hybrid), 10-13 Oct 2022.

It is being hosted by HENSOLDT Cyber GmbH, a Munich-based company which develops embedded IT products that meet the highest security requirements, combining an operating system based on verified seL4 with a RISC-V processor that is protected from supply-chain attacks.

A few pieces of information regarding location:

  • The location of both the summit and the bootcamp are close to the airport (4 S-Bahn stops, 20min) and a bit further away from the city (9 stops, 25min to Hauptbahnhof).
  • The booking of rooms at the INFINITY hotel happens in 2 stages: your registration at the summit allows you to book for the 2 nights of the 10th and 11th of October (confirmation emails for these 2 nights will shortly be sent to people who registered for them). To extend your stay for extra nights before and after these 2 nights, you can use the following special link: book.passkey.com/event/50375651/owner/1468684/home (you need to use the link twice, once for the nights before and once for the nights after). The total payment for all nights will be made onsite at the hotel.
  • For the nights after the seL4 summit, the INFINITY hotel is booked out from the 13th of October. Suggestions of alternative hotels for these nights are available here.

Mentorship Program

As part of the registration process, attendees have the opportunity to opt-in to a new, informal mentorship program. The purpose of this program is to foster mentorship relationships within the seL4 community. The program committee will match students and junior engineers who wish to participate as mentees with volunteer mentors. Participating attendees will be introduced to their counterparts during the summit, and will carry on afterwards with whatever level of involvement suits both parties. Mentors are welcome to volunteer for any level of involvement.
