This is the homepage of Boontawee Suntisrivaraporn. Currently, I am an assistant professor at the School of Information and Computer Technology (ICT), which belongs to Sirindhorn International Institute of Technology (SIIT) of Thammasat University. Since October 2013, I have been appointed a visiting associate professor at the School of Information Science, Japan Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (JAIST) and involved in the development of the SIIT-JAIST dual-doctoral degree (D3) program.

Prior to joining SIIT, I have worked with the Description Logics research group of Franz Baader at the University of Technology Dresden toward my doctoral degree in computer engineering (Dr.-Ing.).

Here is my place in the AIGP and MGP.

One EFS research student under my supervision is sought after. Interested candidates can send me a CV with a casual statement of purpose

Description Logics: Knowledge Representation and Reasoning (KRR) is a prominent research field of Artificial Intelligence (AI). In essence, the goal of knowledge representation is to describe and store knowledge in a systematic and machine understandable way. Having knowledge stored properly in this way, automated reasoning can be employed in order to, for instance, detect inconsistencies and infer implicit knowledge. Several approaches to KRR have been proposed and considered in the AI literature, but some of the most important approaches are based on logic, in particular Description Logics. Description Logics form a successful family of knowledge representation formalisms with two key assets: formally well-defined semantics which allows representing knowledge in an unambiguous way and automated reasoning which allows inferring implicit knowledge from knowledge given explicitly.

Semantic Web Technologies: The eXtensible Markup Language (XML) has been introduced to address the limitations of the Hyper-Text Markup Language (HTML), namely the lack of document structures. Despite a big success in several applications, XML still fails to fulfill the Semantic Web vision, which aims at describing the meaning (semantics) of Web data in a way suitable for automated reasoning. To solve this issue, the Resource Description Framework (RDF) and RDF Schema (RDFS) are used to construct a data model and define a domain-specific terminology, respectively. With a logical underpinning based on Description Logics, RDF and RDFS have been considerably extended to the Web Ontology Language (OWL), a W3C recommendation of ontology language for the Semantic Web. A collection of OWL ontologies will form an indispensible ingredient toward realization of the Semantic Web vision. Although several tools and reasoning techniques are readily available for modeling OWL ontologies, further challenges still remain.

Here are lists of publications and reports.


I am on a leave until 31st of July, and my public calendar below may not be accurate for the period. For graduate examination appointments, please email me directly.

Before making appointment, you may check my availabiltiy here (or view in Google).


If you wish to request for an academic reference, submit the following documents:

  • Curriculum vitae
  • Current transcript (unless you are under my academic advisory)
  • The statement of purpose, i.e. training, study, career, etc.
  • Copy of application form

In normal circumstances, it takes about a week after receiving your documents.
