Call For Papers

June 27-30, 2011, Ouro Preto, Brazil amw2012

AMW - the Alberto Mendelzon International Workshop on Foundations of Data Management - 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 its 6th edition, AMW has been 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 presents some activities specially designed for them. AMW 2012 will be held in Ouro Preto, Brazil, on June 27-30, 2012. Ouro Preto (Black Gold) is a former colonial mining town and a UNESCO World Heritage Site due to its outstanding Baroque architecture.

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.

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 CEUR Workshop Proceedings (
