"GNOME and KDE are teaming up again to host the 2011 Desktop
Summit in Berlin, Germany. Due to the success of the 2009 Desktop
Summit the projects will co-locate GUADEC and Akademy once again in
August, 2011 for the largest free software desktop event ever.
"The 2009 Desktop Summit was a fantastic opportunity for the
leaders of the free software desktop community to share talks,
address common issues, and build relationships between the
communities with combined social events.
"The 2011 Desktop Summit will build on the first Summit's
success. More than 1,000 contributors from more than 50 countries
are expected to attend the 2011 event in Berlin. In addition to
members of the GNOME and KDE development community, the conference
will also attract many participants in the overall FLOSS community
from local projects, organizations, and companies."
