SXSW Interactive PanelPicker Is Now Live. Learn how to submit your #health panels for 2011. #hcmktg #hcnm

The SXSW PanelPicker is a two-step online system that allows the community to have a significant voice in programming Interactive, Film, and Music conference activities for SXSWeek 2011 (March 11-20).

Step One encourages the community to submit proposals for programming at SXSW. Step One of this process continues through July 9.

Step Two allows the community to browse all of these ideas — and rate which of these proposals they think are the best fit for the March event. Step Two of this process begins August 9.

Tapping the Wisdom of the Crowd

SXSW is a community-driven event. So, knowing what kinds of topics you want to hear at the event next March is extremely important to us. Your voting accounts for about 30% of the decision-making process for any given programming slot. Also important is the input of the SXSW Advisory Board, which is a group of industry professionals from across the US and around the world. The final part of the panel decision-making equation is the input of the SXSW staff.

Today I am excited to report that the South By Southwest Interactive Festival will be adding an official health track in 2011. This is exciting for a number of reasons as anyone who has attended SXSWi in the past will tell you.

The reason for this post is to alert you to the fact that the panel selection process is kicking off today and if you are interested in submitting your idea please follow the attached link.

You will be able to categorize your submission as “health” and tag it with any keywords you see fit.

I can’t wait until March 2011! See you there.
