Today, SXSW Interactive makes the final large-scale programming announcement for the 2012 season. Many of the sessions listed below were received through the SXSW PanelPicker process. You can view the list of only the newly accepted proposals below organized by campus. We hope that in listing the sessions in this way, you can get a sense of which campuses will most likely be a part of your SXSW 2012 experience. Utilizing 14 hotels and meeting spaces in downtown Austin, the campus system allows us to place similar kinds of programming in immediate proximity to each other.

Look at the list below to see the first announcement of Future15 programming offerings for 2012, happening at the Hyatt Regency Austin campus. Future15s are a series of 12-minute solo short-form presentations that are curated from proposals submitted to the PanelPicker. Future15 presentations are grouped into two-hour blocks of programming related to a single theme. For more information about the different SXSW Interactive programming formats, click here.
