Save the date! Agenda and content subject to change.

We will provide example active acoustics data and you can work on whatever subject is most interesting or relevant to you, from sediments to fisheries to biomass. We will be looking at ADCP and echosounder data collected from a variety of deployment methods, including bottom mounted and glider deployment.

Unlike a traditional "hackday," this event is about learning and collaboration. There will be no competition, but rather an opportunity to present on growth and achievements at the end of the day.

We hope you will join us for a day of collaboration, learning and echosounder excitement!

The event will be hosted at: UTAS Sandy Bay Campus, Geography Building, Level 2, Room 208 (SB.AS13.L02.208,
