This year’s conference explores the topic about "How to Fail:" and will be centered around the process of productive failure. We want to provide a platform for honest discussion about the role of failure in design, the many ways we can fail, but more importantly, the countless ways we can overcome it. Current sub-themes we have discussed are: failure as an iterative process, failure as luxury, failure as strategy, failure as discipline, with more to come.
