As part of his secondment to University of Toulouse, professor Leandro Antonelli from the National University of La Plata, offered a teaching session on the use of glossaries in early phases of software development.

Requirements engineering is a critical stage in software development. It is one of the first stages, and its main product, the definition of the requirements, it is used to plan the software project. Thus, any mistake in requirements has a negative impact on time, cost, and client satisfaction. Therefore, it is necessary to produce a specification as complete and correct as possible, to reduce further consequences. The talk presents scenarios and a structured glossary to write it (Language Extended Lexicon).
