Chronic constipation remains an enormous clinical and scientific challenge. It is 9 years since we hosted the last major meeting devoted to this subject, and hence, by way of update, we have again assembled an International Faculty of recognised experts, each of whom command a body of work in this field, and who continue to publish contemporary studies. The goal of this meeting will be to disseminate and to critically appraise both a contemporary understanding of current best clinical practice, but also to highlight those evolving concepts relevant to this condition that hopefully will lead to improved management in the future.
