Conferences/Summit 26

Jump to navigation Jump to search

The XMPP Standards Foundation (XSF) will hold its 26th XMPP Summit in the two days preceding FOSDEM 2024, 1 & 2 February 2024.

To participate in this (or any future summit), please join the discussion list and ask for an account in this Wiki, so you can add yourself (and/or colleagues) to the list in this page.


The Summit is an annual two-day gathering where we discuss XMPP protocol development topics. It is a place for XMPP developers to meet each other, and make progress on current issues within the protocol and ecosystem. Discussions are often of a deeply technical nature, though we do try to separate these with lighter high-level topics too.

If this sounds like the right event for you, come and join us! It is open to all community members. We just ask that you register here, so we know how many people will attend and we can plan accordingly.

Not sure you would enjoy this event? That's okay, you might prefer to come along and meet us at FOSDEM instead! We will have people from many XMPP projects there, and we'd love to talk to you.

If you have any questions or concerns, just ask someone!

Conduct and policies

We expect all attendees to be familiar with our Community Code of Conduct.

If you would prefer not to be included in any photography of the event, that's totally fine and you're not alone! A member of the XSF's communications team will be responsible for photography and social media posts at the event, just let them know.
