If my idea is selected, does that mean all the hard work is over?

Absolutely not. If your proposal is accepted, the hard work is just beginning! The best sessions are the ones in which the organizer has devoted a significant amount of time to the organizational process. Said another way, if you aren't prepared to spend a significant amount of time preparing for your session (and communicating with your fellow panelists), then you are better suited to be a SXSW attendee than a SXSW speaker.
