Following the growing success of the previous ISAF meetings (Gothenburg 2012, Athens 2014, Manchester 2016, and Madrid 2018), the aim of ISAF 2020 is to bring together scientists and clinicians of different specialties (i.e. allergy, respiratory medicine, immunology, ENT, paediatrics), nurses, pharmacists and allied care providers, with every degree of professional experience, at a focused meeting entirely dedicated to severe asthma in both the adult and paediatric populations.

Patients with severe asthma account for 5-10% of asthmatics, but their quality of life is significantly impacted, and their care is estimated to cause more than 60% of the costs associated with the disease, therefore imposing a significant socio-economic burden. Considerable progress in understanding and managing severe asthma has been made in the last years and the complexity and heterogeneity underpinning the disease is beginning to be revealed. Major advances include formulation of a standardized definition, identifications of disease patterns, targets and biomarkers, updated evidence-based guidelines and the availability of novel personalized treatments.

ISAF is a cutting edge and evidence-based EAACI Focused Meeting with a scientific programme including a broad range of session formats and designed to facilitate interactive and stimulating discussions. Among key-topics of the 2020 edition there will be precision medicine, electronic-health, big-data, microbiome, pharmacogenomics, medical devices, breathomics and regulatory aspects. Special relevance will be also given to severe asthma in children and during pregnancy. ISAF participation will hopefully facilitate the translation of emerging research findings into clinical practice and favour scientific collaborations. We encourage speakers and participants from all over the world to share their knowledge and expertise with us and partake in a truly iterative interdisciplinary dialogue.

Rome is called the “Eternal City” because the ancient Romans believed that no matter what happened in the rest of the world, the city of Rome would always remain standing. With its unparalleled history, Rome is one of the most visited cities in Europe. It attracts visitors from all over the world who are eager to discover the city’s impressive monuments, such as the Colosseum and the St. Peter’s Basilica, as well as the museums and archaeological sites; not to mention its renowned cuisine, sunny weather and lively atmosphere.
