In this 2-day hands-on course, you will learn how to use the SmartDots web application for setting up calibration events (exchanges, workshops and testing) for age reading and maturity staging. Extraction of reports and data for age reading and maturity staging will be demonstrated. You will also learn how to use the newly released SmartDots software modules for age reading and maturity staging.
The course will be very practical. For each step we will give a short plenary introduction, after which you will work with SmartDots yourself. After each practical session there will be a round of plenary feedback.
At the end of the course, you will be able to set up an event, to pull a report and data and to use the different modules of interest for you.
Deadline for registration: 1 May 2023. Sign up today!
A similar workshop will be organized at the end of the year for the use of the eggs and larvae modules which are currently in development.
