While SXSW Interactive content showcases innovation, inspiration and creativity, our programming comes in many different shapes and sizes. For 2015, we have organized our sessions primarily by theme, but in some instances by format, to help you find the content that interests you most. One of the strengths of our conference is the diversity of our programming. To this end, we've grouped our sessions, and this book, by 15 topical themes and six different formats, whose method of sharing ideas and information are especially unique. Below you'll find an easy breakdown and description of each. Themes (Sessions within these themes will vary in format.) Art, Science & Inspiration Drawing, Space Discovery, 3D Printing, DIY Branding & Marketing Branding, Marketing, Native Advertising Content & Distribution Content Strategy, Journalism, Monetization Design & Development App and Software Development, UX, Web Design Entertainment & Immersion Immersive Experiences, Future of TV Fashion & Wearable Tech Smart Clothing, Future of Retail, Wearable Tech Food & Experiential Dining Future Dining, Agtech, Food Systems, Community Gaming Educational Gaming, Gaming Culture, Gamification Global Impact & Policy Nonprofit, Blacks in Tech, Latinos in Tech Health & MedTech Medical Systems, Self-Hacking, Self-Monitoring Intelligent Future IoT, Autonomous Vehicles, Nanotech, WTF Social & Privacy Social Networks, Surveillance, Encryption Sports Fan Engagement, Sports Analytics, Sports Media Startup Village & Business B2B, Strategy, Startups, Funding, Growth Markets Work & Career Career Dev, Co-Working, Work-Life Balance Formats (Sessions within these formats will vary in theme. *Programming is listed by format, as opposed to theme) *Book Readings Twenty-minute sessions featuring one or two authors presenting their recently, or soon to be released publication.
