I would use biscuits and glue!

If you want you can add cleats to the hidden inside corners for additional glue surface and to straighten out any pieces that may need straightening.

At the other extreme you could use steel dowel and screws. These come it a variety of sizes and colors which can be left exposed or counter bored and plugged. If you leave them exposed you can knock down the desks for transport and or storage.
