The ICDS, after having visited different continents,  after 23 years  will return to Campania, Italy, to Sorrento. In 1999 the ICDS took place in Naples. Since then, the interest in coeliac disease and the broader spectrum of gluten-related diseases, has steadily grown. Significant progress has been made in the understanding of the pathogenesis of coeliac disease. Cohort studies have shed light on the natural history of coeliac disease paving the way for prevention strategies. The realisation of coeliac disease as an autoimmune condition has had impact on new diagnostic tools and protocols. A growing number of clinical trials are being undertaken with the ultimate aim to obtain a therapy alternative to the gluten-free diet.

Sorrento 2022 will be the forum where scientists, clinicians, health allied professionals, patients associations and, industry, will meet to exchange knowledge and experience and to foster cooperation.

The ISSCD Board and the Scientific Committee are working to prepare an exciting program. Sorrento with its beauties, the Amalfi Coast and the allure of Pompei, the food and the lemon scent, will make your visit  an unforgettable experience.

We look forward to welcoming you to Sorrento!

Welcome to Sorrento!

Sorrento, a land of colors and the homeland of Torquato Tasso, is a coastal town of the Sorrento Peninsula located in front of the Bay of Naples.
Sorrento has been influenced by different cultures over the centuries. Greeks, Romans, Normans, Aragonese all passed through here, leaving their mark and receiving in return the fruits of a generous nature and the poignant landscapes of one of the most beautiful stretches of coastline in the world. Since the nineteenth century, Sorrento has always been a great tourist attraction dating back to the era of the “Grand Tour” when the European Aristocracy considered it essential to know and understand the Mediterranean.
