The past decades have seen an enormous growth in the research related to the digital food and cooking recipes underpinnings of data engineering, as food is essential for human life and related health. The ability to collect, store, process, and evaluate cooking recipes has advance immensely, and data science-driven methods have had unprecedented impact on food experience sharing and recommendations at large. Mainly because of their success in analyzing and predicting human cooking expectation, flavor, and taste preferences. Data Engineering stands to benefit from the food computing and recipe cooking revolution in similar ways but realizing this vision requires thoughtful and concerted effort.
The 5th International Workshop on Data Engineering meets intelligent food and COoking Recipes (DECOR2022@ICDE) 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. For information on previous editions of DECOR visit the Workshop webpage.

The fifth DECOR will have a special attention to "Cooking Recipes and food 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 2022 topics.

Special events:

2 Keynote Speakers: TBA

Interactive Session: Mulsemedia food expectation and tasting experience

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.

The proceedings of the workshop will be published jointly with the ICDE conference proceedings and all papers must be prepared in the IEEE format.

All papers must be original and not simultaneously submitted to another journal or conference. Authors are invited to submit long papers (6 pages), or short papers (4 pages), or demonstration (4 pages). Students are also invited to submit long papers
or short papers in the special enlightening student session.
