I am a PhD candidate in Software Engineering at Chalmers University of Technology. My research focus is: Engineering User-eXperience (UX) requirements in software development. The aim of my research is to provide SE practitioners with guidelines on how to elicit, capture and represent the UX requirements.

comment Difference between Requirements Engineering and Usability Engineering
Also, I should add that basically RE has its roots in the SE (software engineering) filed while UE is mostly known and used by interaction designers (well, I'm not quite sure which field initiated that, but it has been an effort to deal with the fuzzy concept of usability in a more engineering way)

comment Do we have a taxonomy of UX requirements for software products?
I have seen people talking about Maslow's hierarchy of needs. This is of course too abstract for an engineering field. But so far, I have not seen a collection of tangible needs/requirements that can be used in SW development, as guide for requirements gathering... I guess there should be related work in psychology at least....

comment Do we have a taxonomy of UX requirements for software products?
What I'm looking for is a collection of different user needs/values/motivations etc. that practitioners can use as cheat sheet to have a more informed requirement gathering process. For instance, how do we know that system X should satisfy communication needs of its users? why is that important to be considered in designing system X? or why should system X motivate its users to finish a boring everyday task?...or even one step before, how do we know that people need to feel connected, and need to communicate, and hate boring tasks and need to feel motivated?

Thanks for sharing this Philip, these guidelines are of course useful but as you see the assumption in these type of guidelines is that a designer will use them to design, and the development circle considered as design-prototype-testing. But we know that SW development does not starts with design but gathering requirement. Some functional requirements and some quality requirements. These requirements are then communicated to designers.

Hi Benny! Thanks, do you mean publishing my results? of course, I will publish it as soon as I'm done with the study. I'm in early stages now. if you mean publishing this question, I just put it on twitter :-)
