International and national coeliac societies were present. The UK Coeliac Society (Andrew Ladds) was this year‘s co-host.

In addition, analytical and clinical research reports were presented, a PWG executive meeting was held, a report by the EC Institute for Reference Materials and Measurements (Christoph Klein) was discussed and a symposium on the use of genetically-modified cereals in coeliac disease (Herbert Wieser, Paul Ciclitira) was organised.
