Call for Papers 
---Special section on multimedia for cooking and eating activities---

The IEICE Transactions on Information and Systems announces that it 
will publish a special section entitled "Special Issue on Multimedia 
for Cooking and Eating Activities" in July 2019.
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. However, due to the aging 
society, nuclear families, and changes of lifestyles, communication 
through food, succession of food culture and cooking techniques, 
health management by meals are gradually becoming difficult. Efforts 
to solve and support these problems by information technology are now
seen everywhere in recent years as various information devices have 
become popular in ordinary households and daily life. Following this
trend, IEICE Technical Committee on Cooking and Eating Activities 
(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. At this year's meeting, CEA 
held a workshop in conjunction with IJCAI-ECAI2018 (International 
Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence-the European Conference 
on Artificial Intelligence). We plan to publish the special section
that consists of the papers published in the CEA 2018 as well as new 
contributions with related topics. The submitted papers are expected 
to be related to Cooking and Eating Activities and its Applications.
