Cooking is one of the most fundamental activities of humankind. 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 cookingeating support for elderly or physically
challenged people is also significantly important.

Since a cooking activity requires people to manipulate foods, watch
their conditions, listen to the sounds, smell the aromas, and taste it,
a cooking assistive system should also be capable of handling multiple
sensitivities. 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 is related work in multimedia, human-computer interaction,
natural language processing, data mining, and artificial intelligence.

As the 13th meeting of this workshop series, it aims to provide an
opportunity for such research groups to discover each other, introduce
their trials, and discuss how it should be and where they should go.
