Call for Papers

The Alberto Mendelzon International Workshop on Foundations of Data Management is an event held yearly in Latin America, to honor the memory of Alberto Mendelzon, who greatly contributed to the Latin American scientific community. The Mendelzon Workshop 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 2015 School tailored to them.

AMW will be held in 2015 in Lima, Peru. Previous editions took place in 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.

Submission instructions

We invite two types of submissions.

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