The Workshop on Person-Oriented Vision (POV) 2011 was held on 7th January 2011, with a programme of two invited speakers and six oral presentations of work on Person-Oriented Vision, and had an attendance of 50 people. The workshop details and proceedings may be found on the IEEE web site. Thank you to all who participated in POV and WVM 2011!

POV has now been succeeded by the Workshop on User-Centred Computer Vision (UCCV), the first of which will be held in January 2013 as part of the Winter Vision Meetings in Tampa, Florida, U.S.A.
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.

POV was part of the Winter Vision Meetings, a set of workshops co-located with a single registration. WVM 2011 was held 5th-7th of January 2011 at the Sheraton Keauhou Bay (near Kona) on the Big Island in Hawaii.
