The first Workshop took place from the 20th of August 2019 at the Robotics Lab workshop of Gothenburg University (UGOT) in collaboration with the Swedish Marine Robotics Centre (SMaRC) including participation of industry (Marine Mätteknik, MMT) and focus on AUV and Sea-Glider operations. Course elements included technical preparation of Autonomous Underwater Vehicles, mission planning preparation, integration of scientific payload, data acquisition and post-processing of various types of sensors with emphasize on hydroacoustic sensors (multibeam, sediment profiling, ADCP). Theoretical course elements were applied practically in a one-day boat trip in the Baltic Sea. The course received 11 applications. All applicants were successful in securing a space on the course which was delivered over six days.
