Cooking is one of the most fundamental activities of humankind.
It is strongly related to social interactions. 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.
Cooking at home requires experience and knowledge. They may also need
support for food-logging and menu planning for their family health.
Needless to say, support for a good and enjoyable meal would improve the
quality of life. Systematic cooking/eating support for elderly or
physically challenged people is also significantly important.

Since people cook by manipulating foods, watching their
conditions, listening to the sounds, smelling the aromas, and tasting it,
a cooking support system also requires multiple sensing capabilities.
Thanks to modern technology, the traditional kitchen is becoming more
intelligent. Recently, home appliances such as refrigerators, microwave
ovens, and cooking stoves, are equipped with multiple sensing devices
and a computing processor. Some may even have additional devices such as
a camera, a microphone, and a RF-ID tag reader built in. Reflecting this
trend, researches on supporting cooking and eating activities have
started throughout the world individually.
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. The research community of CEA is truly
interdisciplinary, including health science, domestic science, and
cultural science. Even if we limit ourselves to computer science, there
are related works in multimedia, human-computer interaction, natural
language processing, and artificial intelligence. At this year's meeting,
CEA plans to organize a workshop in conjunction with UbiComp2014 to have
a discussion from the viewpoint of ubiquitous and pervasive computing
system, among other perspectives.

               [Call for demos on CwC Showcase]

The CwC showcase welcomes all demos of AI-based cooking applications. 
 The aim of this showcase is to invite researchers to demonstrate their 
tools and applications related to cooking, and to provide a time and for 
discussion about how AI and more broadly new information technologies can 
enrich the cooking experience. Hopefully, this will open up new 
possibilities for collaborations! 
 Any type of demo is welcome: web-based cooking application, online recipe 
book, intelligent cooking tools or devices, cooking robots, cooking apps, 
artificially intelligent cooks, recommenders systems for recipes or food ... 
anything.
 Demos can be interactive, or be reported on a video. 
 To prizes will be awarded during the showcase: best demo and funniest demo. 

* Imporant dates of CwC Showcase
  - Proposal submission deadline : July   31, 2014 
  - Notification of acceptance :   August 10, 2014 
  - CwC showcase:                  September 14, 2014 

* Instructions for Author (demos on CwC Showcase)
submission must be sent by email to amelie.cordier [at] liris.cnrs.fr.
Submission format is open. Submissions must describe the demo that 
will be presented during the showcase in one page maximum. 
Links to websites, videos or online demos are allowed in the proposal. 

Submission will NOT appear in the proceedings. Their only purpose is to 
enable the jury to select the demo that will be presented during the showcase.
