The majority of researchers in computer vision focus on technology and systems which advance the state-of-the-art, however there is very little focus on how we can make the state-of-the-art useable by the majority of "ordinary" people.  Additionally, more research is required to provide interactive or accessible techniques to address the shortcomings in current computer vision solutions.


Developing methods to make computer vision accessible poses many interesting questions and will require novel approaches to the problems.

This one day workshop will bring together researchers in the fields of accessible and interactive computer vision to discuss the state-of-the-art and the direction of research. We invite the submission of original, high quality research papers on accessible and/or interactive computer vision.


Areas of interest include (but not limited to):


* Transforming CV problems to exploit meaningful user interaction

* High-level abstractions of vision algorithms

* Automatic or interactive algorithm selection based on user input

* Detection/tracking/recognition of a physical person as input to an interactive system

* Interpretation of user input such as descriptions, sketches, images or video

* Automatic or interactive parameter tuning for vision algorithms

* Case studies on "Person-Oriented" CV

* Vision systems designed for use by non-experts

* Interactive/supervised correction of weaknesses in the current state-of-the-art


Papers will be 6-8 pages with both oral or poster presentations. The WPOV proceedings will be published electronically and indexed in IEEE Xplore.
