Abstract [en]

We examine mobile face-to-face meeting support systems applied to public places and analyse how the temporality of meetings influence the interaction between anonymous participants. Here we uncover a duration paradox. Prolonged meetings between unacquainte people may seem suitable for support systems, since they allow for significant human-computer interaction. At the same time, prolonged meetings can lead to embarrassing consequences, and participants may lose their anonymity. Brief meetings give little opportunity for interacting with systems. But the participants are more prone to provide personal information since the risk of loosing their anonymity is less acute.
