Professor Dr. Jon Atle Gulla is professor of Information Systems at NTNU
since 2002. He received his MSc in 1988 and his PhD in 1993, both in
Information Systems at the Norwegian Institute of Technology. In his PhD
thesis he used linguistic theories to generate user-tailored explanations of
conceptual models and their executions. Gulla also has a MSc in Linguistics
from the University of Trondheim from 1995. In 2003 he completed a MSc of
Management (Sloan fellow) at London Business School. Jon Atle Gulla is

Darmstadt from 1995 to 1996. Gulla is a co-founder of LingIT and
Businesscape and is also serving as the chairman of the board for
Gulla’s research interests include text mining, information retrieval,
ontologies, enterprise modeling and integration, and semantic technologies.
The focus of his current research is on how multi-disciplinary techniques
may be used to extract and manage enterprise knowledge and how ontological
knowledge and semantics may be applied in intelligent large-scale enterprise
applications. He is a reviewer for several journals, and since 1994 he has
been a permanent program committee member of the NLDB conference series. He
has published more than 40 papers in international refereed journals,
conferences and workshops.
