René Schumann studied computer science at the Carl von Ossietzky University of Oldenburg, Germany. From 2004 to 2007 he worked at the R&D division business information management at the OFFIS Institute for Information Technology, Oldenburg. During his time at OFFIS he established the logistics group within the research devision. 

From 2007 to 2010 he was employed as a researcher in the information systems and simulation group headed by Prof. Dr. Ingo J. Timm at the Goethe University, Frankfurt am Main. He received his PhD. in 2010. The title of his thesis was Engineering Coordination A Methodology for the Coordination of Planning Systems.

From 11/2010 until 05/2011 he was a DAAD Researcher at the National Institute of Informatics, Tokyo, Japan. During this time he started to work on Distributed Constraint problems.

In June 2011 he joined the Applied Intelligent Systems Lab at the University of Applied Science Western Switzerland(HES-SO). There he worked as a post-doc in the field of eHealth.

Since 10/2012 he is appointed as a Professor at the HES-SO. His current reseach theme address the business process management in particular in the domain of e-Governement.
