The American Thoracic Society (ATS), the European Respiratory Society (ERS) and the Japan Respiratory Society (JRS) are planning a revision of the 2002 ATS/ERS International Multidisciplinary Classification of Idiopathic Interstitial Pneumonias (IIPs)1. In two years’ time it will be 10 years since its publication and with a view to publishing the revision after 10 years (i.e., in 2012), a steering committee has been established, which met in New Orleans during ATS congress in May 2010 and more recently in Barcelona during the ERS congress (Photo). The committee will meet again during the ATS and the ERS congresses that will be held in the next two years, with an additional meeting in Modena, Italy, in Αpril 2011.
