The International Council on English Braille (ICEB) will be holding its 7th General Assembly from Sunday 18th October 2020 through Thursday  22nd  October 2020 (Monday 19th to Friday 23rd  for Australia and New Zealand). This event was originally planned to take place in Central London in May but will now be a virtual gathering on Zoom.

We are very excited about creating and presenting our event in this new format and we are looking forward to exploring the ways in which we can maximise the opportunities it presents us with.


If you would like to listen into and contribute to any of the live sessions of the General assembly then you will need to register and receive a link. To receive the link please send your name, country and email address and the days you would like to attend to [email protected]

If you would just like to listen to the Assembly proceedings and not be involved in any way, there will be a live stream link available for the duration of the conference

Our main challenge is the different time zones that we are operating within. Broadly speaking the live sessions will last for three hours per day and will be early morning in Australia and New Zealand, late evening in the UK, Ireland and South Africa and afternoon in North America. Key reports will be available prior to live discussion sessions and the presentations will be available in word, brf and recorded highlights.
