We are organizing the 3rd workshop on “Multisensory approaches to human-food interaction” in October 16th, 2018. The workshop will be held in conjunction with the 20th ACM International Conference on Multimodal Interaction in Boulder (CO), USA. After organizing the 1st and 2nd ICMI workshops on “Multisensory Approaches to Human-Food Interaction” in Tokyo (2016) and Glasgow (2017), respectively, we decided to build on the success of these meetings by holding another in 2018. We have a great new team of organizers lined up: Anton Nijholt, Carlos Velasco, Marianna Obrist, Katsunori Okajima, 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.
