Civil Infrastructure Platform to Host Mini-Summit at Open Source Summit Europe

By September 9, 2019Blog

This October, the Civil Infrastructure Platform will be hosting a half-day Mini-Summit, colocated with the Linux Foundation’s Open Source Summit Europe (OSSEU), taking place in Lyon, France.

The CIP Mini-Summit is a half-day, single-track event covering Linux-based industrial open source systems. The event takes place on October 31st from 8:00 – 13:00 at the Lyon Convention Centre.

With this event, CIP hopes to gather all interested in open source and provide technical details and in-depth insights that will further develop the industrial-grade CIP base layer which is built on the work of established and stable work from the likes of Debian, Yocto, RT Linux.  This event is an opportunity to meet and collaborate face to face while advancing CIP’s goal of establishing an open-source “base layer” of industrial-grade software to enable the use and implementation in infrastructure projects of software building blocks that meet the safety, reliability and other requirements of industrial and civil infrastructure. Use cases for this base layer include power plants, radar systems, traffic lights, dams, weather systems and more. 

The day will be jam-packed with topics, including:

  • The State of Civil Infrastructure Platform
  • CIP SLTS kernel development (e.g. Patch management for collaboration with stable kernel team)
  • Security in industrial systems and its future
  • Safe software updates for industrial IoT devices
  • Use cases of the CIP open source base layer
  • CIP testing activities will be presented at the Automated Testing Summit, which CIP is a proud sponsor of.

To attend, guests attending OSS EU can register here for a nominal fee of $10 USD.

In addition to The CIP Mini-Summit, CIP is also sponsoring Embedded Linux Conference (ELC-E) as a Gold Sponsor and will be exhibiting on the showroom floor. Stay tuned for details about hands-on demos we’ll be displaying on site!

Embedded Linux Conference Europe takes place from Mon, Oct 28, 2019 – Wed, Oct 30, 2019  is the leading conference for developers, architects, and other technologists – as well as open source community and industry leaders – to collaborate, share information, learn about the latest technologies and gain a competitive advantage by using innovative open solutions. Over 2,000 will gather for ELC-E in 2019.
