This workshop is aimed at scholars working in musicological disciplines who are interested in applying e-Science methodologies to their own investigations. As such, we hope that it will provide a unique opportunity for those working on new methodologies and technologies for enabling and enhancing musical scholarship to engage with the target musicological community. Therefore, as well as comprising presentations and practical sessions, we hope to integrate some facility for participants to record their experiences in an online, collaborative and real-time manner, thus providing invaluable data for assessing the impact of new methodologies and technologies on the discipline.
This workshop is being organized in collaboration with the AHRC/EPSRC/JISC e-Science in the Arts and Humanities Initiative funded project, Purcell Plus, hosted at Goldsmiths College and headed by Tim Crawford. The Purcell Plus project is also in the process of planning a workshop-like event to be held in spring 2010. It is hoping to establish a relationship between these two workshops, such that the initial event may introduce techniques which participants then experiment with in projects over the following year and report back their experiences in the later workshop. This process will be aided by the online collaboration mechanism we hope to implement.
This meeting is intended for Musicologists who wish to learn more about employing new methodologies in their research; ICT and e-Science professionals with interests in musicology.
