Research on control and decision making in the dynamics of the immune system is evolving at a breathtaking pace. New technologies, including high throughput and single cell analysis, open new avenues of research and stimulate the creation of novel therapies for cancer, autoimmunity and vaccine development. Such interventions benefit from the understanding of the dynamics and architecture of adaptive immune cells.
Dealing with the analysis of large immune cell repertoires is the current challenge in adaptive immunity research. We are striving to find the relationship between an individual’s repertoire and its immune receptor functionality, as well as to unravel the complex, multi-scale dynamics that determine immune response control.
In this conference, we will bring together leading scientists from different disciplines who work on subjects pertaining to control and decision making in the dynamics of immune repertoires. A special focus will be given to enhancing cooperation between clinics and basic research institutions. We thereby seek to deeply explore the newly emerging immune landscape and to bridge some of the gaps between theoretical approaches and clinical research.
We plan for a hybrid workshop with a number of participants on-site and the others connected via video conference.
For accepted participants, online attendance will be possible in any case. The organizers will decide and inform about an option of on-site attendance at a later stage.
