The 2011 Desktop Summit is coming to a close at Humboldt University in Berlin, Germany. This was the second time that GNOME and KDE developers joined to host a Linux desktop summit of around 1,000 participants.

The official description from the summit web-site, "The Desktop Summit 2011 is a joint conference organised by the GNOME and KDE communities in Berlin, Germany, 6 - 12 August 2011 at the Humboldt University. Held annually in European cities, GUADEC and Akademy are the largest gatherings of those involved with the free desktop or mobile user interfaces. Developers, artists, translators, community organisers, users, representatives from government, education, and businesses, and anyone else who shares an interest are welcome. GNOME and KDE are Free Software communities that drive the user interfaces of many GNU/Linux-powered devices. This year, for the second time, both communities have decided to organise a single, joint conference. We anticipate over a thousand participants, covering both projects as well as related technologies."

The first three days focused upon a variety of desktop talks for both the GNOME and KDE talks, while the remaining days were left for development workshops and birds-of-a-feather discussions. There was also a beach party, island party, and GNOME vs. KDE football match.
