On July 26, 2016, the Journal of Blindness Innovation and Research 
(JBIR) published a special edition dedicated to the proceedings of 
the General Assembly of the International Council on English Braille, 
which took place at the National Federation of the Blind Jernigan 
Institute on May 22-26, 2016. In his introduction to this important 
edition Dr. Fred Schroeder, newly elected president of the World 
Blind Union and chief editor of JBIR, stated: "The proceedings of the 
2016 ICEB General Assembly is the single largest consolidated source 
of contemporary information about Unified English Braille (UEB) in 
the English speaking world. The papers reflect the thinking and deep 
personal commitment of the world's foremost authorities on English 
braille and their determination to insure that braille continues to 
be the foundation of literacy and equal opportunity for blind people
