SIGIR 2018 WORKSHOP
International Workshop on Computational Surprise in Information Retrieval (CompS’18)
July 12, 2018, Ann Arbor, Michigan

HELD IN CONJUNCTION WITH

SIGIR 2018


Today we are exposed to vast amounts of information online and we often cope by paying attention to what well-known search engines or recommender systems can provide. Current information retrieval systems have been criticized as reinforcement of the same, relatively limited set of information rather than promoting unexpected exploration and discovery. The notions of “echo chambers” and “filter bubbles” are the prime motivations behind this workshop on computational surprise – breaking the chamber and bursting the bubble through thoughtful design of digital systems. We are interested in surprise and related aspects in the context of personalized and adaptive systems, such as search engines, recommender systems, user modeling.

Topics of Interest
Surprise, or unexpectedness, in retrieval and recommender systems
Serendipity
User-centered evaluation studies on aspects of surprise and serendipity
Computational approaches to content discovery
Inspirational recommender systems
Computational novelty and curiosity
Chance and randomness in intelligent systems
Retrieval and recommender systems in creative domain, such as music creation
Fake news detection and clickbait detection
