INBAF invites everyone to join in the International Council on English Braille’s General Assembly – online and for free!!

The ICEB General Assembly is nearly here!
UKAAF and RNIB are delighted to be working with ICEB to host the 2020 ICEB General Assembly.
It doesn’t look very much like the event we were planning this time last year but we have embraced the challenges. We are happy to report that we have managed to put together, for the first time, a new look Virtual ICEB General Assembly. It will take place from Sunday the 18th October to Thursday 22nd October (19th to the 23rd for our antipodean attendees) for three hours each day. The time zones have given us our biggest headache, there will be some early mornings and late nights for some countries attending the live sessions but we hope we have managed to accommodate most people at a vaguely civil hour!
There will be the usual procedural business along with question and answer sessions focussed on different aspects of braille. Day 2 will feature music, Day 3 will feature technology and Day 4 will feature education and the braille code. Our presenters have recorded short videos on the highlights of their papers to give you a flavour of their contents. The papers themselves will be sent to everyone registering for the event, so if you want to know more you can delve into the detail. The presenters of the papers will be available for live question and answer sessions and discussions on the day that covers their topic.
We hope you will be able to join us for all or some of the live sessions. If the times don’t work for you then you are welcome to download the recordings of the daily proceedings. All the information you need, including the event programme, is available on the assembly website (which is updated regularly).
The most important thing to do is to register. It is absolutely free and it means that we can keep you updated with refinements to the programme and send you the link to listen into the conference. To register, please send your name, country and email address and the days you would like to attend to . NB If you are one of your countries four official delegates or a presenter then you will be registered automatically. If you have any other queries then please email the same address
We look forward to welcoming you to our Virtual Event!
