Abstract The past three-year period has seen steady efforts to collect large numbers of radial-velocity (RV) measurements, as well as important applications of radial velocities to astrophysics. Improvements in precision continue to be driven largely by exoplanet research. A workshop entitled ``Astronomy of Exoplanets with Precise Radial Velocities'' took place in August of 2010 at Penn State University (USA), and was attended by some 100 researchers from around the world. The meeting included thorough discussions of the current capabilities and future potential of the radial velocity technique, as well as data analysis algorithms to improve precision at visible and near-infrared wavelengths.
