Given an area that contains a multi-view human head, I'd like to track it in a video. The head will most likely rotate or tilt at least once. Where should I start?

If the head is the only moving object in the scene, then you will get good results with background-foreground segmentation followed by tracking of blobs that occur.

Another approach could be to create a multiview detector specified for a human head. An example of this can be found in this paper.

you can try the camshift approach although i think that this method will not work perfectly but you can try. If you are not satisfied with the results from camshift, then you should move to different approaches like kalman filter or particle filter.
