PanelPicker Rules& How To Showcase At SXSW 2014

Panel Picker Rules: PanelPicker is a two-step
online system. Step One encourages the community to submit proposals for
daytime conference programming at SXSW at beginning Monday,
July 1, 2013 through Friday, July 26, 2013. Step Two allows the community to
browse all of these ideas and rate which of these proposals they think are the
best fit for the March events. Community voting begins Monday, August 19, 2013
and will continue through Friday, September 6, 2013. Votes from the community,
along with feedback from SXSW Advisory Boards and the SXSW staff, will help
determine programming for the 2014 event. Additional information including
categories, presentation formats, and the user-generated tags feature built in
