The vast majority of SXSW Gaming sessions are selected through an interface called the PanelPicker.
The PanelPicker is a two-step online process that allows the SXSW community to have a significant voice in programming SXSW Gaming, SXSW, SXSWedu, and SXSW Eco conference activities (presentations, panels, discussions, demonstrations, etc.) For more information on the PanelPicker, please view the FAQ or email email@example.com.
This easy to use interface combines public voting, expert opinion, as well as staff input to democratically determine the Conference’s programming lineup. Each proposal is given a composite scored based on the public’s voting (33%), the views of our Advisory Board (33%), and of the SXSW Staff’s input (33%). Each proposal is given thoughtful reflection and discussion.
PanelPicker opens in June and closes in mid July, and will be open for a month. Please stay tuned for more information on PanelPicker for the 2018 season, or sign up for the SXSW Newsletter to stay well-informed about all of SXSW’s deadlines and announcements.
If you have an innovative idea for the 2017 SXSW Gaming Conference, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with a brief explanation of your proposed session.
