Abstract

We regularly make serendipitous discoveries in both online and offline contexts - from stumbling upon a useful website when searching for something completely different to meeting someone with mutual research or business interests in an unlikely place. However, most existing interactive systems do not provide a fertile environment for serendipity to occur. This workshop will identify key requirements and research challenges for designing and evaluating user-centred systems that aim to encourage serendipity. © 2011 IFIP International Federation for Information Processing.
