Prof. Dr.-Ing. Uwe Stilla  

Uwe Stilla was born in Cologne, Germany, in 1957. He received the Diploma (Dipl.-Ing.) degree in electrical engineering from University of Paderborn, Germany, the Diploma (Dipl.-Ing.) in biomedical engineering and the Ph.D. (Doctor of Engineering) degree in pattern recognition from the University of Karlsruhe, Germany, in 1980, 1987, and 1993, respectively. From 1990 to 2004, he was with the Research Institute of Optronics and Pattern Recognition (FGAN-FOM), Ettlingen, Germany. Since 2004, he has been a Professor with the Technische Universitaet Muenchen, Munich, Germany, and the Head of the Department of Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing. He was the Vice Dean of the Faculty of Civil, Geo, and Environmental Engineering and is currently the Dean of Studies of the Bachelor’s and Master’s Programs “Geodesy and Geoinformation, “Earth Oriented Space Science and Technology (ESPACE)” and “Cartography.” His research interests include image analysis in the field of photogrammetry and remote sensing. The publication list of Uwe Stilla shows more than 500 entries.


Prof. Stilla is the Chair of the ISPRS Working Group III/VII “Pattern Analysis in Remote Sensing”, is a Principal Investigator of the International Graduate School of Science and Engineering (IGSSE), the Vice President of the German Society of Photogrammetry, Remote Sensing and Geoinformation (DGPF), a member of the Scientific Board of German Commission of Geodesy (DGK), and a member of Commission for Geodesy and Glaciology (KEG) of the Bavarian Academy of Science and Humanities, Munich, Germany. He has been the organizer and the chair of many ISPRS and IEEE conferences and events, like “Photogrammetric Image Analysis (PIA),” “City Models, Roads and Traffic (CMRT)”, “GRSS/ISPRS Joint Urban Remote Sensing Event (JURSE 2011)”, “Earth Observation and Global Changes (EOGC 2011)”, and the IEEE-GRSS “Remote Sensing Summer School (RSSS12)”.
