Workshop call:

Everyday food science refers to habitual experimentation with edible
materials. Example practices range from preserving, fermenting, brewing, or
pickling, to foraging, molecular gastronomy, dumpster diving, or healing
with food.

Focusing on food as a platform for everyday science, this one-day CHI
workshop will examine opportunities to intersect HCI research with everyday
food science. The workshop will include *materially-oriented, hands-on
activities with food* (e.g., fermenting, foraging, or molecular gastronomy
experiments) to explore the unique challenges, goals, materials, and
practices that underlie bottom-up food experimentation. Working directly
with food science processes will enable researchers and practitioners to
critically reflect on and envision socio-technical systems that counter
mass-consumption and work around mainstream food systems.

*We welcome different submission formats:*

   - Position paper in CHI archival format (maximum 4 pages)
   - An example (photograph, video, etc.) of a prior food science project
   such as fermentation, foraging, molecular gastronomy, nutritional medicine,
   or brewing, along with a brief description.
   - A creative proposal for a hands-on food science project to be
   conducted during our workshop at CHI

Submissions will be accepted based on originality and quality, and will
represent a spectrum of viewpoints and participant backgrounds. Submissions
from underrepresented disciplines in the HCI community will be particularly
welcome (e.g., food science, anthropology, literature, philosophy,
political sciences, or the arts). Submissions may be sent by email to
