The desktop and LSB architects meeting is in conjunction with the Linux Foundation Collaboration Summit. The following are lists of speakers and attendees for the entire summit. The desktop and LSB architects are a subset of the full attendee list. The DAM-4 meeting has a pretty dynamic format and every architect will come with preparation material, however not all architects will present their material at the combined meeting.
