PanelPicker process for programming submissions to SXSWedu, March 3-6, 2014 is quickly approaching. If you are interested in speaking at the 2014 Conference & Festival you will need to get your ideas into the mix during the entry period listed below.The
PanelPicker opens for submissions on Monday, July 1 so now is the time to start thinking.Choosing a great title for your SXSWedu presentation is an obvious, but often overlooked, step in the PanelPicker process.
Cute titles are fun. However, remember that your title is going to be fighting for attention with hundreds of others when it comes time for the voting phase of PanelPicker.
The goal is to generate interest and arouse curiosity that will contribute to the overall message of your session. The title you craft should accurately and sufficiently reflect the focus of your idea so that people can understand what your session will cover before they read the description.
