Sorry for the late answer.

As I live in Brussels, I come at FOSDEM, since the first edition, by
bike, and never had any problem (I came last year with my Brompton).

There are bike racks around on the campus and if I remember correctly
there are at least two racks at the entrance of the H building (where
the main desk is located).

Just take a decent U lock or similar (I use a folding one from Abus).
