Call for Papers

Food is one of the central elements in our society. We eat a meal more than fifty thousand times before we die; enhancing the daily food experience impacts our quality of life. There is a wide range of industries for supporting our eating activities. At the same time, however, there are many unsolved social problems, such as lifestyle-related diseases and sustainability. Technology-oriented solutions are vital since these social problems are often a trade-off with individual satisfaction.

Multimedia is a key technology to understand food-related activities. When tasting food, we use the full sensitivities of our mouths. Multi-modal sensing for food tasting is a fundamental technology to know the micro-level eating experience. Such an experience may be described on the Web, creating various contents such as reviews, recipes, and any types of SNS communications. Analyzing such contents gives us a macro-level understanding of the tendency of food-related social behavior. An end-to-end computation from micro-level to macro-level information is a kind of ultimate multimedia technology. We believe that computationally understanding such a multimedia information flow, reproducing good experiences, and changing human behavior must contribute to society.

As the fourteenth meeting of this workshop series, it aims to provide an opportunity for research groups concerning food-related social problems to discover each other, introduce their trials, and emerge brave new ideas to solve their problems with multimedia technologies. Note that this year's workshop will be collocated with MADiMa2022, and share some events to communicate with each other.

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

  • Studies motivated by ...
    • Behavior change on food intake
    • Improvement on satisfaction of eating
    • Food-mediated communications / interactions / advertisement / learning / rehabilitations
    • Well-being and social good on cooking and eating
    • Any other food-related social problems
  • Studies related to ...
    • Machine learning technologies for cooking and eating activities
    • Food-related knowledge collection and analysis on the Web
    • Analysis on five senses at eating
    • Food-related illusion via multimedia technologies
    • Human-in-the-loop for food-related contents creation
    • Robot / gadget / intelligent environment for cooking and eating support
    • Brain / mental / emotional activity analysis on food-related experience
    • Dataset and tools on cooking and eating activities

The workshop flyer can be downloaded below. Please feel free to distribute the information among your research groups.
