Exciting news for SXSWedu 2017 is here! We are pleased to announce the 10 startup finalists that have been selected to compete in the sixth annual Launch competition. Additionally, the online schedule of sessions and events is also now available for you to explore by date, time and location. We've also added a number of films, Policy Forum sessions, mentors, summits and more for the Conference & Festival.
For 2017, PanelPicker will feature sixteen different thematic tracks. While broad in scope, each of these track helps to illuminate subject matter of interest to the community and provide a framework for the programming at SXSWedu.
There's nothing more disappointing than waiting in line for a popular session and then not getting a seat because the room reaches capacity. SXSWedu has been working hard to schedule popular sessions in larger rooms but inevitably, this can be challenging to anticipate. During the event, the SXSWedu team will be on the look out for hot sessions! If the space is available, we'll reach out to the session's organizer and speakers to schedule an encore of the popular session (should their travel schedules permit it).
SXSWedu hosts a variety of programming to appeal to every need and interest. Educational Equality was one of the top tracks during the PanelPicker submission window.
