To sponsor future XSF dinners, please contact Dave Cridland or any member of the XSF Board! No donation too small (or too large)!



The Summit will 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.


From the Brussels main train station (Gare Centrale/Centraal Station):

Walk to the Parc tram station, take the tram #92 or #93. Change over at Botanique and take the bus 272 to Diegem Kennedy and walk the last bit. ( )


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 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:

  • Ralph Meijer
  • Florian Schmaus
  • Matthew Wild
  • JC Brand
