The Linux Kongress is an annual two-day conference of Linux developers from around the world. It has taken place since 1994, when Linux was in the early stages of development, and has almost always occurred in Germany.

The Kongress is a meeting place for many different types of developers. Kernel developers like Linus Torvalds and Alan Cox, user space developers like Kalle Dalheimer and Miguel de Icaza, and Open Source advocates like Eric Raymond have all participated.

The focus of the Kongress is new core technologies, either in kernel or user space. The official language of the Kongress is English.

Recently, the Kongress has been more cooperative with other agencies than in the past. In 1999, the Kongress cooperated with the Storage Management Workshop. In 2000 and 2001 there were several multi-day workshops sponsored by the German Ministry of Science and Education that preceded the conference. In 2004, a Netfilter workshop sponsored by Astaro took place before the conference.
