Hi everyone,
Apologies for cross-posting.

we would like to extend an invitation for a Human-Food Interaction workshop
<> which we're hosting at
the upcoming CHI 2018 conference in Montreal
<> (workshop
date: 21st April / DL for submissions: 18th Feb).

We will experiment with various food-tech prototypes, scenarios, as
well as food
design games and discuss what roles does technology design play in people’s
everyday food lifestyles. Our scope is broad and we are interested in all
kinds of (existing as well as envisioned) digital and data-driven food
practices. Of particular interest are issues around* personalized
nutrition, AI in the kitchen, *digital food sharing and commensality,
food-tech* but also *amateur food science practices* such as *diet
self-experimentation and DIY ‘food hacking’ *(e.g. fermentation).

We will discuss broader socio-cultural, environmental and policy frameworks
of the emerging digital food innovation and think of the ‘best ways’ how to
design for safe and sustainable, but also experimental, playful and just
food systems.

If you plan to be at CHI this year, it will be fantastic to have some of
your work presented at the workshop! If you won't, but still would like to
attend, just join us over Skype. We'll also maintain a lively blog to share
the workshop outcomes and invite participants to contribute to a special
issue on Human-Food Interaction.

Attendance details available here
