Andreas Jedlitschka received his M.S. degree (Diplom, 1994) and PhD (Dr.-Ing., 2009) in Computer Science from the University of Kaiserslautern. After working seven years as an IT-consultant at Voss&Kamb und Partner GmbH he joined Fraunhofer IESE in 2000 where he worked as project manager and scientist. Currently he is heading the department "Data Engineering", dealing with a systematic approach to topics related to data (Why, What, When, Where, Who, Which, How). His research interest is empirically-based and data-driven decision support where he has published several papers in Journals and Conferences. More recently, Andreas focuses his work on business value and the use of large, heterogenuous data sources (now named Big Data) for detecting patterns and in particular deviations from those. He co-authored a German patent on "Verfahren zur unaufdringlichen Überwachung einer Person und System zur Durchführung des Verfahrens". His most cited work is on "guidelines for reporting controlled experiments in software engineering". The guidelines provide one starting point for the adoption of the evidence-based SE paradigm. Dr. Jedlitschka is member several Program Committees (e.g., ESEM, PROFES) and served as a Program Co-Chair of ESEM 2016 and as the General Chair of PROFES2013 He represents Fraunhofer IESE in the International Software Engineering Research Network (ISERN). In projects with industry and under European FP5 (ESERNET), FP6 (EMERGE, VIDE, ReDSeeDS), FP7 (OASIS, AALIANCE, MUNDUS) and H2020 (Q-Rapids) he had/has leading roles.
