Distributing data sessions: supporting remote collaboration with video data.
In: First International Conference on e-Social Science, 22 - 24 June 2005, Manchester, UK.
The design of distributed infrastructures to support remote collaboration among groups
of social scientists raises new computational and networking challenges that Grid developers are
currently targeting. Beyond such technical goals, however, the e-Science programme as a whole
is increasingly recognizing the critical need for a comprehensive understanding of ordinary dayto-day work in the sciences. We have investigated one particular area of collaborative social
scientific work – the analysis of video data. This paper discusses current practices of social
scientific work with digital video; describes the resulting requirements for distributed video
analysis systems; and outlines our initial programme of infrastructure and interface development
to address these requirements as part of the VidGrid project.
