The AIRR-C Meetings Sub-committee provided a Virtual Attendance option for AIRR Community Meeting IV. AIRR Community Meeting IV was streamed live through GoToMeeting. Virtual attendees were able to follow all of the scientific sessions seeing the slides and listening to the speakers. Please check our recordings page to access the videos of our talks.
The theme of this meeting, “Bridging the Gaps” addressed 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 had two outstanding Keynote speakers – Dr. Sai Reddy from ETH Zurich and Dr. Antonio Lanzavecchia from IRB Bellinzona. Two panel sessions included representatives from institutions and companies that work with AIRR-seq data. In addition, two “challenge” sessions were planned to address the above-mentioned gaps. Two pre-meeting workshops were also available to teach the basics of immunology, and of AIRR-seq data analysis for beginners. We also had two poster sessions; and a tool and software demos session and a pipeline tutorial session.
