Call For Papers

The 10th Alberto Mendelzon International Workshop
on Foundations of Data Management (AMW 2016)
Panama City, Panama, 8th-10th June, 2016

The Alberto Mendelzon International Workshop on Foundations of Data
Management (AMW) is an event held yearly in Latin America, to honor the
memory of Alberto Mendelzon, who greatly contributed to the Latin
American scientific community. AMW is intended to
promote research in Latin America; however, it is an international
venue that welcomes submissions and participants from anywhere.

The workshop especially encourages the participation of Latin American
and international graduate students and young researchers, and
includes the AMW 2016 School tailored to them.

AMW will be held in 2016 in Panama City, Panama. Previous editions took place
at Lima, Peru (2015); Cartagena de Indias, Colombia (2014); Puebla, Mexico (2013);
Ouro Preto, Brazil (2012); Santiago, Chile (2011); Buenos Aires, Argentina
(2010); Arequipa, Peru (2009); Punta del Este, Uruguay (2007); Laguna
San Rafael, Chile (2006).

We solicit submissions in the following areas of data management, but
not limited to them. Logic and databases; data integration;
incompleteness and inconsistency in databases; data exchange; model
theory and databases; conceptual modeling; integrity constraints
(dependencies) in databases; knowledge bases; constraint databases;
data mining; data modeling; web data management; data streams; data
warehousing; query processing and optimisation; distributed and
parallel databases; information retrieval; multimedia databases;
ontology-based data management; physical design; data privacy and
security; data provenance; query languages; real-time data; semantic
web; semi-structured data; sensor data; web services; spatial data;
temporal data; transaction management; probabilistic databases; fuzzy
data management; and Web mining.

Papers addressing foundational aspects are particularly welcome.
However, we also encourage the submission of papers (especially short
papers; see submission instructions below) that illustrate
applications of foundational results in real-world contexts.


We invite two types of submissions.

(a) Extended abstracts of up to 10 pages, presenting original
research. These papers are intended to be published in the WS CEUR
proceedings (

(b) Short papers of up to 4 pages that may contain either original
ongoing research or recently published results.

Papers have to be formatted according to the LNCS Springer style for
Lecture Notes in Computer Science (available at and submitted
electronically via EasyChair in PDF format:

The submissions will be judged by the Program Committee for
scientific quality and relevance. At least one author of each accepted
paper must attend the workshop to present the work.


Paper submission: 29th February, 2016
Notification of acceptance: 11th April, 2016
Camera ready copy due: 9th May, 2016
