AIRR Community Meeting IV: Bridging the Gaps
11-15 May 2019, University of Genoa, Italy
The theme of this meeting, “Bridging the Gaps” addresses technological gaps between the amounts of accumulated data and our ability to process them, and the need for more involvement of stakeholder communities (industry, clinicians, patent communities) for uptake of the standards developed by the AIRR Community. We have confirmed two outstanding Keynote speakers – Dr. Sai Reddy from ETH Zurich and Dr. Antonio Lanzavecchia from IRB Bellinzona. Two planned panel discussions will include representatives from other institutions and companies that work with AIRR-seq data. In addition, two “challenge” sessions are planned to address the above-mentioned gaps. Two pre-meeting workshops will be available to teach the basics of immunology, and of AIRR-seq data analysis for beginners. Also planned are two poster sessions; and two tool and software demos sessions.
Stay tuned for more information!
