User Requirements Gathering for the Humanities
Thursday 12th October, 10.30 a.m. to 4 p.m, The Classics Centre, The Old Boys
School, George Street, Oxford, OX1 2RL
Workshop Two – Requirements gathering in eScience
The second workshop was designed to provide information about current methods of requirements capture within the e-science sector and to encourage discussion as to the similarities and differences between the sciences and humanities. In this respect the workshop addressed what the wider community is doing, what is and is not relevant to requirements capture within humanities research, and encouraged participants to begin to think about a methodology devoted to the humanities.
In conjunction with Marina Jirotka of the Oxford Centre for Requirements and Foundations, the session outlined the key methodologies utilized within the sciences, encouraging discussion and interaction around the relevance and benefit of current e-Science methods within the humanities.
