The Eighth International Workshop on
Multimedia for Cooking and Eating Activities (CEA2016)

In Conjunction with
2016 IEEE International Conference on Multimedia & Expo (ICME2016)

Seattle, USA / July 15, 2015


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
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 are related works in multimedia, human-computer interaction,
natural language processing, and artificial intelligence.

As the eighth 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 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
- Analysis of Web contents on cooking/eating activities
