Jump to navigation Jump to search

The XMPP Standards Foundation (XSF) will hold its 23rd XMPP Summit in the two days preceding FOSDEM 2019, January 31st & February 1st.

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:



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 31st Jan
  • Fri 1st 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.

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.
