Dear all,

Please find below the CFP for the Third workshop on Multimedia for
Cooking and Eating Activities (CEA2011), which will be held in
conjunction with the IEEE Intl. Symposium on Multimedia (ISM) 2011.

Call for Papers
3rd Workshop on Multimedia for Cooking and Eating Activities
  in conjunction with
    The IEEE International Symposium on Multimedia (ISM2011)
                                      Dana Point, California, USA
                                               December 5-7, 2011

  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, dietary, 
culinary art, entertainment, human communication, and so on. Many
people who cook at home require supports for cooking because it 
requires experience and knowledge. They may also need support for
food-logging and menu planning for the health of their family. 
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

  Since people cook by manipulating foods, watching their 
conditions, listening to the sound, smelling the meal, and 
tasting it in the end, cooking support system also requires such
multimedia sensing capability. Thanks to modern technology, the 
basic environment in a kitchen is becoming rich. Recently, home 
appliances such as a refrigerator, a microwave oven, and a 
cooking stove, are equipped with multiple sensing devices and a 
computer processor. Some may even have a capability to equip 
additional devices such as a camera, a microphone, a RF-ID tag 
reader, and so on. Reflecting this trend, researches on 
supporting cooking and eating activities have started in many 
corners of the world individually.

  As the third 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.

Relevant Topics:
   - Application for cooking and eating support
   - Cooking archiving and recognition
   - Learning contents creation for cooking
   - Analysis of cooking 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 
   - Ubiquitous environment and interface in kitchen
   - 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
