From September 7th to 11th, the 55th edition of the "Photogrammetric Week"  ̶ the "PhoWo" ̶  took place at the University of Stuttgart (Stuttgart, Germany).

The Photogrammetric Week series was initiated in Jena, in 1909 by Carl Pulfrich as a “vacation course in stereo-photogrammetry.” In June of the same year Pulfrich sent out the call for participation in the German "Zeitschrift für Vermessungswesen" (ZfV) for the course, which took place from October 4th to 9th. Since 1973 the "PhoWo" has been organised biennially by the Institute of Photogrammetry, at the University of Stuttgart; from 1973 to 1991 under Professor Fritz Ackermann and from 1993 to 2015 under Professor Dieter Fritsch. Today, the "PhoWo" enjoys international recognition as an upgrading seminar and a platform for the exchange of experience.
