Call for papers CWC 2013: 2nd Workshop on Cooking with Computers
3 August 2013 - Beijing, China
Held during IJCAI 2013


= Presentation
Can computers help cooking?
Can "machine learning" help cooking? Can "knowledge representation" help 
Can "reasoning" help cooking?
Can "planning" help cooking?
Can "natural language processing" help cooking?
Can any other field of AI help cooking?

The Cooking with Computers workshop aims at gathering researchers from as
many fields of AI as possible. The main objective of this workshop is to 
show how some
existing AI approaches could be used to solve problems in the cooking 
and eating domain.
= Submission topics
This workshop is widely open to all AI researchers, whatever their 
of research is. It is an opportunity for AI researchers to examine
their approaches on a common application and a way to highlight some 
possible interactions between AI fields.

Expected submissions include (but are not limited to):
* Machine learning (categorizing cooking elements, e.g. what is a soup?, 
prediction of cooking times, ...).
* Classification (organizing recipes, organizing procedures, ...).
* Knowledge representation (representing recipes, cooking procedure, 
domain knowledge, flavours and subjective information, ...). * Knowledge 
extraction (extracting cooking knowledge, building ontologies, building 
inference mechanisms, ...).
* Natural language processing (extracting cooking knowledge from 
unstructured natural language texts, ...).
* Reasoning (using inference mechanisms for adapting recipes, creating 
new recipes, dealing with nutritional aspects, ...). * Semantic Web 
(sharing cooking resources, ...).
* Sentiment Analysis (detecting cooking preferences, ...).
* Video annotation (identifying in a cooking video what is cooked, or 
the sequence related to a given preparation, ...).
* Planning / workflows (improving the presentation of preparation steps 
to users, ...).
* Human-Machine Interfaces (designing next generation cooking 
assistants, ...).

Application domains include (but are not limited to):

* Cooking assistants
* Recipes design * Cooking and food sustainability
* Cooking for well-being
* Cooking and pedagogy
* Cooking for special regimes
* Interactive recipes visualisation
* Sharing of cooking knowledge
* Cooking and shopping
* Cooking and health
* Cooking and recommendation systems

= Submission format

We invite the following kinds of contributions: * Full research or 
application papers (10 pages) describing recent research outcomes, 
mature work, prototypes, applications, or methodologies. * Short 
position papers (up to 6 pages) describing early work and new ideas that 
are not yet fully worked out.
* Demo outlines (2 pages) describing the demonstration of a software 
prototype in the poster and demo session during the workshop.
Demonstrations are widely open to any kind of contribution: cooking 
system, innovative website, personal assistant application, video,
cooking robots, etc.
* Poster descriptions (2 pages) outlining a poster to be presented in 
the poster and demo session during the workshop.

All submissions must be written in English, following IJCAI 2013 
submissions guidelines.

= Submission website
