SYMPOSIUM 16: Failure: The Greatest Teacher
The vast majority of scientific literature and conference talks report positive results, but there is a lot to be learned from negative results and missteps as well. After the “successful” part of the meeting closes, come hear recognized leaders in the field discuss failure—and perhaps recount some of their most spectacular learning experiences—during a frank and friendly discussion in a relaxed atmosphere. Speakers and audience alike are encouraged to check their egos at the door for this event that has turned into an EMA highlight. In addition to highlighted failures, this year we will also be including contributed vignettes on failure and lessons from experience.
