2nd Workshop on “The Future of Computing & Food”

We’re organizing the 2nd workshop on “The Future of Computing & Food” on the 28th March 2019 in Kyoto, Japan, which is co-located with the IEEE Virtual Reality Conference (IEEE VR) 2019 and co-sponsored by the ACM Future of Computing Academy (ACM-FCA) and Ritsumeikan University.

The goal of this event is to build, and follow up on, the “Future of Computing & Food Manifesto”(https://acm-fca.org/2018/07/01/future-of-computing-food-manifesto/).

The Manifesto was the key outcome from the 1st “Future of Computing & Food” event that was a co-located with the AVI2018 (International Conference on Advanced Visual Interfaces 2018), and co-organised by the ACM-FCA. In this event, we go one step further and aim to address pressing questions on the intersection between technology and food, such as: How will the VR/AR technologies change our multisensorial eating experience?

How will we design and innovate considering food/mouth/digesting system as an interface? How will the future computing landscape explore this interaction design?

We invite participation from representatives of both the computing and food industry, so that we can envisage the future of HCI beyond 2020. We aim to bring together this wide range of people from academia and industry to co-create and shape the agenda for the interwoven future of computing technology and the human sensory capabilities and multisensory potential.

The format will be a combination of Keynotes, 10min Inspirational Talks, Spin-out Group work and Plenary Discussion, Tasting Event with local producers (Wa-gyu (Japanese beef), Ramen (Japanese noodle), Japanese Sake and more!) and multisensory experimentation.

Multisensory brand experience design

Next September 20th, 2018, I’ll give a talk about Multisensory brand experience design in BI Norwegian Business School’s «Marketing Research for Breakfast» (Oslo, Norway). This event format is a meeting place for researchers and practitioners in marketing where you – as a participant – get the opportunity to discuss how these results influence your company and business practice.

In this talk, I’ll also give a sneak preview of our upcoming edited book: Velasco, C. & Spence, C (Eds). (in press). Multisensory packaging: Designing new product experiences. Palgrave MacMillan.

The Future of Computing & Food

We’re organizing the satellite event “The Future of Computing & Food” on the 31st May 2018 in Grosseto, Italy, which is co-located with the International Conference on Advanced Visual Interfaces (AVI) 2018 and co-sponsored by the ACM Future of Computing Academy (ACM-FCA). The ambition of this event is to discuss the developments around technology and food through involving a variety of different stakeholders, ranging from local food producers, chefs, artists, to designers, engineers, data scientists, psychologists.

We invite participation from representatives of both the computing and food industry, so that we can envisage the future of HCI beyond 2020. We aim to bring together this wide range of people from academia and industry to co-create and shape the agenda for the interwoven future of computing technology and the human sensory capabilities and multisensory potential.

In this event, we aim to formulate a Manifesto on the interwoven Future of Computing and Food. This manifesto will get inspiration from the debate raised by different and sometimes antipodal perspectives on food like for instance the ‘infamous’ Manifesto of Futurist Cuisine written by Filippo Tommaso Marinetti in 1909, and the avant-garde’s riposte of the Slow Food Manifesto published by Gambero Rosso on 1987. Our Manifesto will envisage the future of food with the emergence of computing technology that is changing the way we cook, eat, drink and experience food.

Organizers: Marianna Obrist, Patrizia Marti, Carlos Velasco, Yunwen Tu, Takuji Narumi, Naja L. Holten Møller.

Seoul, South Korea

Doctoral Consortium Chairs: Marianna Obrist (University of Sussex, UK) & Carlos Velasco (BI Norwegian Business School, Norway). Please contact the chairs through the email address: dc@tvx2018.com

ACM TVX is the leading international conference for presentation and discussion of research into online video, TV interaction, emerging media, and relevant user experiences.

The TVX Doctoral Consortium (DC) serves as a forum for PhD students to share ideas about the development, use, and evaluation of interactive television, high-definition TV, VR/AR media consumption, and online video user experiences. A great benefit would be to compare approaches, discuss research problems and receive feedback from senior experts of the International Interactive Television/Media community.

PhD students working on topics as below are invited to submit a paper to the Doctoral Consortium for TVX2018: Content production, systems & infrastructures, devices & interaction techniques, user experience & interaction design, media studies, immersive media experiences, alternate realities, data science and recommendations, business models & marketing, and innovative concepts and media art.

Key dates and facts:

• Submission deadline: 30 March 2018 (12:00pm PT)
• Doctoral consortium papers should use the regular SIGCHI paper format
• Submissions must be made via the PCS Submission System
• Notification: 30 April 2018
• Submissions between 2-4 pages (including references)
• Accepted contributions will be published in the Adjunct Proceedings indexed in ACM digital library
