General chair: Gregor Miller (University of British Columbia)
Program chair: Daesik Jang (Kunsan National University)

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- 

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