We are organizing the 2nd workshop on “Multisensory approaches to human-food interaction” on November 13th, 2017. The workshop will be held in conjunction with the 19th ACM International Conference on Multimodal Interaction in Glasgow, Scotland, November 13-17, 2017. After the 1st workshop on “Multi-sensorial approaches to human-food interaction” last year in Tokyo, Japan, we decided to build on the success of this meeting by holding another in 2017. We have a great new team of organizers lined up: Anton Nijholt, Carlos Velasco, Marianna Obrist, Katsunori Okajima, H.N.J. Schifferstein, and Charles Spence.

In summary though, we are calling for investigations and applications of systems that create new, or enhance already existing, eating and drinking experiences (‘hacking’ food experiences) in the context of Human-Food Interaction. Moreover, we are interested in those works that are based on the principles that govern the systematic connections that exist between the senses. Human Food Interaction also involves the experiencing food interactions digitally in remote locations. Therefore, in this workshop we are also interested in sensing and actuation interfaces, new communication mediums, and persisting and retrieving technologies for human food interactions. Enhancing social interactions to augment the eating experience is another issue we would like to see addressed in this workshop.
