Before joining the KLU, he was Assistant Professor of the endowed chair of Logistics Information Systems at the Information Systems Institute of the University of Leipzig since 2012. There he led the research initiative Logistics Service Engineering and Management which was funded as light house project by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research. André Ludwig has studied at the University of Leipzig, NTNU Trondheim, Curtin University of Technology Perth, and Swinburne University of Technology Melbourne and received a Doctorate and a Diploma degree in Management Information Systems from the University of Leipzig in 2008 and 2004, respectively. During his academic career Ludwig worked in several research projects such as Adaptive Services Grid, LOGICAL (both funded by the European Commission), InterLogGrid and Logistics Service Engineering and Management (both funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research). He was a research visitor at SAP Research Australia and Swinburne University of Technology Melbourne. He set up the Logistics Living Lab in 2013, an innovation platform for IT-based logistics in Leipzig and was involved in the development of the Future Logistics Living Lab operated by SAP, Fraunhofer IESE and NICTA in Sydney/Australia. André Ludwig’s current research topics include engineering and management of adaptive logistics service systems, cloud computing in logistics, real-time monitoring of logistics processes, and cross-enterprise application integration in logistics information platforms. His research was documented in numerous international peer-reviewed articles and conference proceedings, i.e. BPM, WI, BIS.
