Call For Papers


May 12-15, 2009, Arequipa, Peru

The ``Alberto Mendelzon International Workshop on Foundations of Data
Management" (AMW 2009) will be held in Arequipa, Peru, between May
12-15, 2009. This will be the first open version of the workshop, of
which there were two previous versions before, in Laguna San Rafael,
Chile, November 2006 (; and Punta del
Este, Uruguay, November 2007

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 increment 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 a very interesting and attractive location: Arequipa is
a beautiful city and many other touristic sites 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:

algorithms; complexity; computational model theory; concurrency;
constraints; data exchange; data integration; data mining; data
modeling; data management on the Web; data streams; data warehouses;
distributed databases; information retrieval; knowledge bases; logic;
multimedia; physical design; privacy; quantitative approaches; query
languages; query optimization; real-time data; recovery; scientific
data; security; semi-structured data; spatial data; temporal data;
transactions; 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 10 pages. Papers longer than 10 pages risk rejection
without consideration of their merits.


Paper submission : January 15, 2009
Notification : March 6, 2009

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 submission process will be through
the Web. A link to the submission web site and details about
publication of the proceedings will appear on the conference web site
in due time.
