Abstract

We present SerenA, a multi-site, pervasive, agent environment that suppers serendipitous discovery in research. The project starts from the premise that human users cannot be aware of all the research information that is relevant to their work, because of the compartmentalisation of research into fields around particular journals, and, simply, because there is too much to know. In particular, the Semantic Web provides a resource which can assist, but there is more to be discovered than the things that a user might deliberately search for. SerenA, then, attempts to assist researchers by presenting them with information that they did not know they needed to know about their research.
