Call for Papers
There is a growing interest in the context of Human-Food Interaction to capitalize on multisensory interactions in order to enhance our food- and drink- related experiences. This, perhaps, should not come as a surprise, given that flavour, for example, is the product of the integration of, at least, gustatory and (retronasal) olfactory, and can be influenced by all our senses. Variables such as food/drink colour, shape, texture, sound, and so on can all influence our perception and enjoyment of our eating and drinking experiences, something that new technologies can capitalize on in order to “hack” food experiences.
In this 3rd workshop on Multi-Sensorial Approaches to Human-Food Interaction, we again are calling for investigations and applications of systems that create new, or enhance already existing, eating and drinking experiences (‘hacking’ food experiences) in the context of Human-Food Interaction. Moreover, we are interested in those works that are based on the principles that govern the systematic connections that exist between the senses. Human Food Interaction also involves the experiencing food interactions digitally in remote locations. Therefore, we are also interested in sensing and actuation interfaces, new communication mediums, and persisting and retrieving technologies for human food interactions. Enhancing social interactions to augment the eating experience is another issue we would like to see addressed in this workshop.
In particular, we call for research that looks into the following topics:
- Using multisensory digital devices to manipulate eating and drinking atmospheres (e.g. colour, music in the room) and factors such as food presentation (e.g. size and/or shape of the plate, smell and/or colour of the food).
- Collecting user’s responses derived from flavour experiences through digital devices. For example, tracking behavioural aspects (e.g. tracking movements, eating speed, and facial expressions), and/or using psychophysiological measurements.
- Utilizing multisensory experience design, technology, and playful interactions to influence food habits and choice.
- Understanding the role of technology in the social aspects of dining (e.g., social media and food pictures).
- Novel applications of food and technology in different contexts, for example during airplane flights, or space travel.
Exploring the role of technology to enhance or otherwise influence social aspects surrounding eating behaviour. Defining the methods of associating the extended sensory data (smell, taste, feel) with traditional (AV, text) data. Food as data.
Guidelines for Papers and Submissions
We invite the submission of long (8 pages) and short (4 pages) papers. Papers should be anonymous, and the review process will be double blind. The papers should follow the ACM template. Links to the templates are available from the ICMI 2018 website.
Papers should be submitted to: email@example.com. The workshop papers are indexed by ACM.
