The XMPP Standards Foundation (XSF) will hold its 22th XMPP Summit in the two days preceding FOSDEM 2018, Thursday February 1st & Friday 2nd.

To participate in this (or any future summit), please join the discussion list and post with your participation request or ideas for Summit topics.


Minutes for the Summit:


The logistical details for the Summit were announced on the summit mailinglist. The post can be found here.


Cisco System Belgium
Pegasus Park
De Kleetlaan, 6A
1831 Diegem

Direct trains to Diegem run from both Brussel-Centraal (2-3 trains/hour) and Schuman (1 train/hour). Both routes should take between 15 and 20 minutes. According to Google, it's a 6 minute walk from the station to Cisco Systems Belgium. Schuman is the station closest to the Thon Hotel EU, the 9:31 train should get you at Diegem station around 9:46, which would get you at the summit with a few minutes to spare.

For more routing options, check Google Maps


  • Thu 1st Feb
  • Fri 2nd Feb

We'll start at 10:00 on both days. If you plan to arrive at least 15 minutes early, there shouldn't be an issue with getting things going smoothly. We expect to conclude both days around 17:00.


Possible topics (please augment as desired):

  • Your topic here - add your name please!
  • "Inbox" This I think qualifies as one of the topic under XMPP 2. Michal Piotrowski and/or Bartlomiej Gorny
  • "XMPP 2". What do we need to do to enable us to ship competitive modern messaging that behaves the way people expect (e.g. multi-device sync...). Kev and/or Georg.
  • SPAM, SPAM, SPAM, bacon, sausage and SPAM: does not need to be a XEP, a list/repository of recipes and good/best practices can help a lot
  • XMPP's trend is shrinking: are we happy about it? and if we are not, what can we do about it
  • XMPP on IoT - A live working demonstration

Hotel Booking

A hotel group discount has been arranged that covers Summit 22 as well as FOSDEM 2018. There's no requirement to spend all nights covered by the discount. It's perfectly fine to spend just some nights, which might be of interest to people attending just one, instead of both events.

The designated hotel is Thon Hotel EU (Rue de la Loi 75, B-1040 Brussels, Belgium). Please fill in your check-in and check-out dates in the participants list above. A reservation form has been shared via the summit mailing list (contact Guus if you need a copy).

Remote Participation

We will use the chatroom for coordination.

The following people plan to participate remotely some or all of the time:

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)

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.
