The Workshop on Data Engineering meets intelligent food and COoking Recipes (DECOR) aims to accelerate research in data science by providing a forum for the latest innovations in the intersection of Data Engineering and Intelligent Food and Cooking Recipes. Intelligent Food and Cooking Recipes domain comprises not only the process of cooking, but also includes intelligent methods for enhancing human-food interactions, ranging from devising technology, playful interactions, multisensory experience design, understanding cross-cultural food eating habits and perception, as well as food choices and their health connections. Consequently, increasing the ability of influencing food eating habits and choices that promote, simultaneously, healthful eating-decisions and creative new human-food interaction experiences.

The fourth DECOR will have a special attention to ''Cooking Recipe Giga dataset for Data Engineering.'' We envision that this workshop will continue:

a) To bring together researchers and practitioners from the data engineering and the food computing and social media communities, with the goal of investigating and leveraging new research opportunities in the design and implementation of data infrastructure and real-world applications with emerging food and cooking recipe computing technologies.
b) To promote discussions on how to push forward innovative solutions for the challenging problem on how to store, access and retrieve pertinent information and knowledge from an increasing amount of data available to everyone.
c) To discuss several challenges associated with the progress of the multiple aspects of the Intelligent Food and Cooking Recipes area as a sub-field of the Data Engineering and Big Data arena.

All these are tailored to be aligned with ICDE 2021 topics.

Special events:
2 Keynote Speakers:
- Charles Spencer, Professor, Cross-modal Research Laboratory, Oxford University, UK.
- Ramesh Jain, Professor, Department of Computer Sciences, University of California Irvin, US.

Interactive Session: Mulsemedia and Mouthfeel

Enlightening Student session

Best paper awards: one best paper; one best student paper

Authors will be encouraged to submit contributions addressing a range of topics in the intersection of Data Science, Data Engineering and Applied Computational Science, with impacts on on-going standardization, especially in cooperation with ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 42, international standards committee responsible for standardization in the area of Artificial Intelligence (AI). We will call for contributions related to model design, use case best practices, technologies and intelligent data management tools supporting Intelligent Food and Cooking Recipes processes. In addition to primary investigations applying advanced analytic pipelines to data already stored in repositories, desirable contributions also include the reports of the full set of digital and/or Mulsemedia objects that are produced. These digital objects might include original data, software, software pipelines, models, workflows, containers, virtual machines, intermediary data, and metadata strategies.

December 14, 2020 Full Paper, demo, short paper Submissions due
January 15, 2021 Acceptance Notification
February 1, 2021 Revision Submission due
February 9, 2021 Final Notification
