XMPP Summit 17

The XMPP Standards Foundation (XSF) will hold its 17th XMPP Summit on January 29+30 before FOSDEM 2015.

If you would like to participate in the Summit, please join the summit@xmpp.org discussion list and post with your participation request. Space is not infinite, but we will try to accommodate all requests.

Meeting Notes

Minutes for the Summit will be made available after it closes. If you're new to XSF Summits and want to get an idea of what goes on, maybe you can take a look at the Summit_15_Minutes produced after last year's Brussels summit?


Possible topics (please augment as desired):

  • XMPP-IoT Joachim Lindborg: Current state of the IoT Xeps
  • Editor team automation sprint
  • e2e encryption & OTR
  • The state of UPNP and their XMPP cloud project (and us as liaisons)
  • Relation/Liason to W3C interest group on the Web of Things: charter
  • XEP-0322 EXI: Update on/upstreaming of implementation, comments

The agenda items from the last Brussels summit are available on the Summit 15 page. Please post to the summit@xmpp.org discussion list if you would like any of these topics re-visited or updated during Summit 17 or if you have suggestions for Summit 17 topics.

XSF Dinner

As usual, the XSF will hold a dinner for XSF participants in conjunction with the Summit. The dinner will take place on the evening of January 29 (Thursday), location TBD. XSF members attend for free and are allowed to bring one guest.




The following organizations and individuals have stepped up to sponsor the dinner:

  • Isode : €1000
  • Other sponsors to be announced shortly.

To see your name here, please contact Dave Cridland or any member of the XSF Board! No donation too small (or too large)!



The Summit will likely again be held at Cisco Systems Belgium's offices in Diegem (just outside Brussels and accessible via local train from the city center).

Address: De Kleetlaan 6/B, 1831, Belgium.


We'll be aiming to get there for 9:30 for a 10:00 start (local time).

Hotel Booking

The designated hotel is Aloft Brussels Schumann. Please fill in your check-in and check-out dates in the participants list above, so we can try to arrange a group discount.

Remote Participation

We will use the summit@muc.xmpp.org chatroom for coordination and Google Hangouts with a YouTube broadcast for sharing audio and video.

GPG key signing

During the summit there will be the possibility to sign each others GPG keys. If you want to have your keys signed, please take along:

  • Key printouts with the following:
    • your first name and last name
    • the e-mail adresses and other id's you would like to have signed
    • the key-id and encryption method (eg: 4096R/1A2B3C4D)
    • key fingerprint (visible with: gpg -v --fingerprint 1A2B3C4D)
  • Some official ID with photo (e.g. Passport or drivers license)

Prepared like this, it should not take more then 15 minutes to cross-sign the keys of everybody who is interested. More info can be found at: Debian Wiki on Keysigning. Some handy scripts for making mass-signing more easy can be found in the Signing party Debian package.

Here are the people who plan to participate in key signing:
