Well, the thing which is nice with Brussels, you can easially get there 
from across Europe. I agree with Matthew, that missing 1 day of FOSDEM 
is a pity, but we could simply host it in other bigger European cities. 
There's Amsterdam, Paris, Berlin, Frankfurt, Copenhagen, .... more or 
less everything with an Airport.

The advantage of having it in Brussels, together with FOSDEM: You get 
some new ideas, while going through FOSDEM. And we should represent 
Jabber at FOSDEM every year. So while we're at Brussels anyway, why not 
have a XMPP Summit.
