2019 SXSW PanelPicker Opens June 25
The 2018 SXSW PanelPicker has concluded. Many of the speaking proposals entered via this interface were part of the 2018 event.
We will begin accepting speaking proposals for SXSW 2019 on Monday, June 25, 2018 (and this process will expire on Friday, July 20). Stay tuned to this page for more information.
PanelPicker is a two-step, digital crowd-sourced platform that enables the community to propose ideas for a variety of session formats. The entry process is a month-long submission window, where you can enter your idea for consideration to be presented at SXSW EDU 2018. PanelPicker will then re-open for public voting, allowing the community to review and vote on all ideas entered.
The final decision is derived from the Advisory Board evaluations (40%), public voting (30%) and staff analysis (30%).
