GRASP Faculty on the South by Southwest Interactive 2014 Panels...Katherine Kuchenbecker and Vijay Kumar

An Abundance of Creativity: 500+ Confirmed Sessions for the 2014 SXSW Interactive Festival

Today, we announce the bulk of confirmed sessions for the 2014 SXSW Interactive Festival. Almost all of these sessions come from proposals submitted by the online community via the SXSW PanelPicker. The selection process for these proposals mixes voting from the general online public, plus Advisory Board input as well as SXSW staff input.

The breadth and width of these 500+ sessions reflects the marketplace of amazing ideas that comes together in Austin each March. Specific trends and themes that will be particularly important for the 2014 SXSW Interactive Festival include "Privacy and Security," "Global Impact and Policy," "Design and Development," "Art, Science and Inspiration" and "Intelligent Future." As in previous years, we continue to see lots of very strong interest in Startup Village programming so look for even more international participation in this space in March 2014.
