PanelPicker community voting is now open. Cast your vote in support of the ideas that you would like to see programmed at SXSW EDU, August 5-23, 2019.
Last month SXSW EDU received a record number of proposals for the 2020 Conference & Festival.
How to Vote
Once signed on, you can begin voting! Select “SXSW EDU 2020” from the conference dropdown and then further filter through the proposals by session format, programming track, and level. You can also search the proposals by title, description, keyword tags, and speakers using the search field.
Each voter can cast one vote per proposal by selecting “arrow up” for yes or “arrow down” for no. Additionally, voters can leave a constructive comment about the proposals or ask questions for the organizer.
The PanelPicker Process
PanelPicker helps to shape the depth and scope of the SXSW EDU conference programming by giving the community a voice. Community voting comprises 30% of the selection decision, plus input of the SXSW Staff (30%) and Advisory Board (40%) helps ensure that less well-known voices have as much of a chance of being selected to speak at SXSW EDU as individuals with large online followings. Together these percentages help determine the final content lineup.
