Want to be a part of SXSW EDU 2024? Now’s the time to start thinking about session ideas to have your voice heard and make an impact on the future of teaching and learning. Starting Tuesday, June 27, you can enter your session idea in PanelPicker® to speak at SXSW EDU 2024, taking place March 4-7 in Austin, Texas.

PanelPicker is the official, user-generated platform that enables the community to propose session ideas for the SXSW EDU program through a two-part online process.

STEP 1 encourages the community to enter a session proposal to speak at SXSW EDU.

STEP 2 allows the community to browse all of these ideas, leave comments, and vote for their favorite proposals. The final decision is derived from Advisory Board evaluations (40%), public voting (30%), and staff review (30%).

PanelPicker Entry: June 27 - July 23 PanelPicker Voting: August 8 - August 20
