Dear all,

Apologies for cross posting.

We would like to share an open call for submissions for the “Eating Your
Own Data: Design at the Intersection of Quantified Self and Digital Food”
workshop organized at the Interact 2017 <>
conference, happening on September 25/26, 2017 in Mumbai, India.  More
details about the workshop at:


Human Food Interaction (HFI) as a field of research is gaining currency
within HCI with a focus on how we grow, shop, cook and eat food with the
use of digital technology. The advancements in food printing technologies
add an extra dimension to these established practices and research is
needed to understand how it would affect people’s practices and
relationship with food. For instance, instead of cooking food with hands or
using traditional kitchen appliances, food printers allow creation of
edible artifacts from digital designs. As such, food printing can connect
cooking with digital information, wherein digital 3D print models can
replace traditional recipes.

We are particularly interested in the implication of such technology
towards personalized nutrition wherein quantified self (QS) technologies
(e.g. Fitbit, heart rate monitors, calorie counters) can be combined with
food printing technologies to provide users with different information and
experiences that meet their needs and desires. We find this an intriguing
combination that we believe holds an exciting premise for HCI and HFI.


The workshop welcomes submissions of various types including study designs,
case studies of existing systems, recent research, and position papers
around the topics of quantified self practices, food printing and human
food interaction (HFI).

Participants are welcomed to discuss (but not limited to):


   WHAT TO PRINT IN FOOD?: Experiences from previous and current projects,
   Ideas and perspectives on the crossing of food and quantified self.

   HOW TO PRINT IN FOOD?: Design, implementation, and evaluation methods,
   Methods and techniques to understand and experiment with food as material.

   WHY TO PRINT IN FOOD?: Needs of specific communities (e.g., health &
   nutrition, sustainability), Practices, values, and beliefs around digital

Authors are invited to submit short papers using the Springer LNCS Format
(4 pages max) sent as PDF and emailed to: [log in to unmask]

If you have any further question, please let us know!

We look forward to seeing you.
