We present an introduction paper to the second version of the workshop on ‘Multisensory Approaches to Human-Food Interaction’ to be held at the 19th ACM International Conference on Multimodal Interaction, which will take place on November 13th, 2017, in Glasgow, Scotland. Here, we describe the workshop’s objectives, the key contributions of the different position papers, and the relevance of their respective topic(s). Both multisensory research and new technologies are evolving fast which has opened up a number of possibilities for designing new ways of interacting with foods and drinks. This workshop highlights the rapidly growing interest in the field of Multisensory Human-Food Interaction, which can, for example, be observed in the variety of novel research and technology developments in the area.
