Call For Papers

May 21-23, 2013, Puebla/Cholula, Mexico

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 Mendelzon
so greatly contributed. This is a way to honor his memory, and to boost and
solidify the research in the region.

The AMW has been a periodical Latin American-based, but international venue
for high-level research mainly in the foundational aspects of the area. This
year it will be held in Puebla/Cholula, Mexico, during May 21-23, 2013, and
locally organized by the Benemerita Universidad Autonoma de Puebla (BUAP) and
the Universidad de las Americas Puebla (UDLAP). Previous editions were in
Laguna San Rafael, Chile (2006); Punta del Este, Uruguay (2007); Arequipa,
Peru (2009); Buenos Aires, Argentina, (2010); Santiago, Chile (2011); and
Ouro Preto, Brazil (2012). The event encourages the participation of Latin
American graduate students and organizes some activities specially designed
for them.

We solicit submissions on 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 and inconsistency handling;
information retrieval; integrity constraints; knowledge bases;
logic and databases; multimedia; physical design; privacy;
provenance; quantitative approaches; query languages; query
optimization; ontology-based data management; real-time data; recovery; scientific
data; search; security; semi-structured data; sensor data;
services; spatial data; temporal data; transactions;
uncertainty; updates; views; workflows; XML data management. Papers addressing
foundational aspects are particularly welcome.
