When you enter your speaking proposal in the SXSW PanelPicker interface, you will be asked to choose a track in which this idea belongs.

For 2023, we have added several new options to this track list. These new track options include:

Energy (distribution, equity and alternative sources)
Food (what, why and how we eat)
Markets & Economies (the disrupted supply chain and beyond)
Quantum Computing (is getting closer and closer to mainstream)
Travel & Leisure (revenge travel is here to stay)

Other tracks have gained slightly different names for the 2023 SXSW Conference. These new track names include:

Games as Convergent Media (previously called Game Industry)
Workplace Revolution (previously called Future of Work)

Remember that properly identifying your speaking proposal with the most accurate track title helps users better find your idea when browsing the PanelPicker community voting interface.

PanelPicker community voting is scheduled to run August 9–21, 2022.
