This publication reports the proceedings of the preliminary meeting of the working party that met at Gastro 2009 during the World Congress in London. The purpose of the preliminary meeting was to consider the areas that require attention, to discuss some of the findings that have already been published and to agree on the way forward. Our reason for publishing these proceedings is to stimulate interest in this venture and to provide the opportunity for input from the endoscopy community worldwide. The next meeting of the working party will be at the JGES Society meeting in Aomori in April 2011 when we hope to prepare a preliminary classification. This will be presented for general discussion and debate at the International Congress of Endoscopy (ICE) in Los Angeles in September 2011.
