GNOME and KDE 2011 Desktop Summit programme published
The GNOME Foundation and KDE e.V. boards have published the programme for this year's Desktop Summit. Following the opening keynote, attendees can visit one of four different rooms, each with a variety of tracks including community, applications, platforms, tablets, development and accessibility & help.
The 2011 event will take place over the course of a week from 6 to 12 August at the Humboldt University in Berlin, Germany; it is open to developers, community members and users alike. The joint conference is supported locally by the Berlin Senate and the TSB Innovation Agency Berlin GmbH, and is expected to bring together more than one thousand core contributors, open source leaders and representatives from government, education and corporate environments.
The two organisations first co-located their flagship Akademy and GUADEC conferences in July 2009 at the Gran Canaria Desktop Summit (GCDS), which was unanimously considered to be a success. More than 850 GNOME and KDE project contributors from 50 countries attended the 2009 Desktop Summit in Las Palmas on Gran Canaria, Spain.
