The massive SXSW festival kicks off Friday in Austin, Texas, with a helping of public media hosts, executives, journalists and others sitting on panels, squeezing into music venues and downing tacos and margaritas with the best of them. We’ll be there covering it, and we’ve made a list of all the pubmedia-related goings-on. Use it as your own guide to help choose among the hundreds of sessions. (You can grab this calendar-friendly link as well.)

Among the most pubmedia-centric panels:

Meanwhile, several other sessions will feature public media personalities as speakers and moderators, including “And While We Are Asking, Is Media Dead Too?” (Bob Garfield), “Social Media: Breaking News or Fixing News?” (Kai Ryssdal) and “Latino Tech-Culture Powers Up” (Maria Hinojosa).

NPR has posted its own guide to sessions and events featuring its staff and journalists. Independent Television Service created this list, and Radio Survivor compiled a guide as well.
