The second community meeting was designed to further organize the burgeoning community that is producing and using AIRR sequence data.  As with our initial meetings, this meeting brought together a diverse community: researchers sequencing antibody/B-cell receptor and T-cell receptor repertoires to profile the immune system in health and disease, industrial partners, statisticians, bioinformaticians, computer security experts, and experts in the relevant aspects of ethics, law, and policy.  The agenda was organized around three working groups: AIRR Common Repository, Minimal Standards for publishing AIRR data and deposting in a Common Repository, and Tools and Resources to ensure reproducibility of AIRR data.
