The publicly available page of the VRE - i.e. https://bluebridge.d4science.org/web/ices_fiaco - should be revised to include:
- a short description of the scope of the VRE and the challenges that it addresses;
- a clear statement describing who are the communities and the stakeholders that can use the VRE and the main benefits that they can get;
- a clear statement on the main services made available by the VRE;
- a "demo" (screenshots or video);
- links to related documents;
Please, produce a text suitable for an HTML page and share it by the workspace dedicate folder https://goo.gl/NBB54e

** ICES Training Course on Principles and Methods of broadband/wideband technologies: application to Fisheries Acoustics**
The training course was held on board a Norwegian vessel, RV G. O. Sars, from 8 to 13 December 2016. The number of participants was 20 from 13 countries, representing 20 organizations. There were also 5 instructors and 3 technical and logistic assistants.
The course provided participants with the knowledge to interpret and process acoustic broadband/wideband data and to be prepared for moving broadband/wideband technology forward into routine acoustic research and survey applications in fisheries science.
This was an advanced course in fisheries acoustics. The participants were expected to have moderate (college level) knowledge in algebra, calculus, and experience with narrow-band echosounders, such as Simrad EK60. In addition, programming ability (Matlab, R, etc.) was required.
