Panel Programming:
Ideas for 2008 Accepted Beginning June 1

SXSW Interactive is again committed to the concept of user-generated content. As such, the ideas of the community play a vital role in shaping the look, feel and tone of the event. Panel suggestions for the 2008 SXSW Interactive Festival will be accepted beginning Friday, June 1. Then, in the fall, these ideas will be posted online so that the community can have their say as to which suggestions they think are most appropriate for SXSW. Stay tuned to this website for complete details on how your well-conceived and well-organized programming brainstorm can become a full-fledged panel in March 2008. Or, better yet, subscribe to the monthly Intergen listserve for updated information on this panel submission process.
