AIRR Community Meeting VI: “Exploring New Frontiers” was held in La Jolla, USA from May 17-19, 2022. The meeting provided opportunities to network, participate in AIRR Community Working Groups and Sub-committee meetings, and learn in workshops reviewing the immune system and AIRR-seq data generation and analysis.

I attended the meeting and presented poster “Systematic evaluation of B-cell clonal family inference approaches from AIRR-seq data and impact on biological conclusions”. I got to know colleagues and their research. In a series of tutorials, a special interest was caused by the presentation of OPIG Antibody Suite. In addition, during the mentoring event I learned about the use of deep learning models for detecting antibody patterns in Illumina AI Lab and possible methodologies for studying post-SARS-CoV-2 autoimmunity.
