Newsletter no.2 - May 2023

Dear national event coordinator
A new updated version of SmartDots has been released, now including modules for eggs and larvae identification. An update for all users is mandatory and will be available when you login to the software. Ongoing events will not be affected.

A new web application manual called "SmartDotsHowToRunEventsManual” and a new software manual called “SmartDotsHowToAnnotateManual” are in the process of being published. The software manual now includes a generic chapter as well as chapters for the different modules.
Both manuals can soon be found through the SmartDots starting page under User handbooks (

An ICES training course for event coordinators will be run in two different sessions. For age and maturity on May 15/16 (online) and for eggs and larvae in autumn 2023 (dates tbd ).

Best regards
