Dear Sir/Madame

We would like to cordially invite you all to participate in the 5th Visual Impairment Conference “See Invisible”  which will be held on November 13, 2020. Due to the epidemiological situation, the conference will be held online.

As every year, the program  of the conference will concern visual disabilities in the social, educational, psychological, medical, rehabilitation and new technologies contexts.

The aim of the conference is to address theoretical and practical aspect of visual impairment  in an interdisciplinary and international forum  of scientists, specialists, social activists, as well as the blind and the partially sighted, and their families.

This year, we would like to invite guest speakers from foreign countries to present their practice in different areas connected to people with vision problems. Therefore, two languages will be used during the conference (Polish and English).

The special guest of the conference will be prof. Bogusław Marek, a world-known specialist in teaching English to blind children.

With kind regards,
