Call for Papers

Cooking is one of the most fundamental activities of humankind. It is not only connected with the joy of eating but also deeply affects various aspects of human life such as health, culinary art, entertainment, and human communication. Cooking at home requires experience and knowledge. They may also need support for food-logging and menu planning for their family health. Needless to say, support for a good and enjoyable meal would improve the quality of life. Systematic cooking/eating support for elderly or physically challenged people is also significantly important.

Since a cooking activity requires people to manipulate foods, watch their conditions, listen to the sounds, smell the aromas, and taste it, a cooking assistive system should also be capable of handling multiple sensitivities. CEA has been aiming to provide an opportunity for such research groups to discover each other, introduce their trials, and discuss their status and where they should go. The research community of CEA is truly interdisciplinary, including health science, domestic science, and cultural science. Even if we limit ourselves to computer science, there is related work in multimedia, human-computer interaction, natural language processing, data mining, and artificial intelligence.

As the twelfth meeting of this workshop series, it aims to provide an opportunity for such research groups to discover each other, introduce their trials, and discuss how it should be and where they should go.

The workshop welcomes contributions in, but not limited to, the following topics:

  • Application for cooking / eating support
  • Cooking / eating archiving and recognition
  • Learning contents creation for cooking
  • Analysis of cooking / eating video
  • Recipe image / video retrieval
  • Analysis and utilization on cooking recipe
  • Menu planning, dietary management, and food log
  • Artificial agent for cooking/eating activity
  • Sensing of taste / smell / texture
  • Food communication (human-to-human / human-to-computer communication)
  • Ubiquitous environment and interface in kitchen / dining room
  • Intelligent home appliance
  • Cooking navigation interface for the dementia and physically challenged person support
  • Multimedia learning contents for dietary
  • Multimedia information service for food safety and security
