Call For Papers



May 9-12, 2011, Santiago, Chile}

The 5th Alberto Mendelzon International Workshop on Foundations of Data
Management (AMW 2011) will be held in Santiago, Chile, on May 9-12,
2011. This will be the third open version of the workshop, fourth in
total. Previous editions were in Laguna San Rafael, Chile, November
2006; Punta del Este, Uruguay, November 2007; Arequipa, Peru, May
2009; and Buenos Aires, Argentina, May 2010.

This is an initiative of the Latin American community of researchers
in data management, to which our friend, colleague and mentor Alberto
so greatly contributed. In this way we expect to create a periodical
Latin America-based venue for high level research in the fundamental
aspects of the area. This is a way to honor the memory of Alberto,
and to boost and solidify the research in the region. This event,
as the previous ones, encourages the participation of Latin American
graduate students and develops some activities specially designed for

We have chosen an attractive location: Santiago is
a fascinating city and many other touristic sites, such
as beautiful Valparaiso, can be easily accessed from there. But more
importantly, we want to offer an exciting scientific atmosphere, and
receive high level research contributions.

We solicit original submissions on foundational aspects of the
following areas (among possibly others) of data management:

computational model theory; constraint databases; data exchange;
data integration; data mining; data modeling;
data management on the Web; data streams; data warehouses;
database algorithms; distributed and parallel databases;
incompleteness; inconsistency; information retrieval;
integrity constraints; knowledge bases; logic;
multimedia; physical design; privacy; provenance;
quantitative approaches; query languages; query optimization;
ontologies; real-time data; recovery; scientific data;
search; security; semi-structured data; sensor data;
services; spatial data; temporal data; transactions;
uncertainty; updates; views; workflows; XML.

Paper submissions must be in electronic form using Portable Document
Format (.pdf). Papers should be formatted according to the Springer
LaTeX2e style llncs for Lecture Notes in Computer Science, which is
available at The length
should not exceed 12 pages. Papers longer than 12 pages risk rejection
without consideration of their merits.

Important Dates:

Paper submission deadline: February 22nd, 2011
Notification: March 31st, 2011

The submissions will be judged for scientific quality and
relevance. At least one author of each accepted paper must
attend the workshop to present the work. The proceedings will be published
in electronic format as a
