PRELIMINARY CALL FOR PAPERS THE ALBERTO MENDELZON WORKSHOP ON FOUNDATIONS OF DATA MANAGEMENT May 12-15, 2009, Arequipa, Peru

http://db.cs.ualberta.ca/amw09/

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 (http://grupoweb.upf.es/bd-web/); and Punta del Este, Uruguay, November 2007
(http://www.fing.edu.uy/inco/grupos/csi/AMW07/).

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 them.

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.

SUBMISSION GUIDELINES 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 http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html. The length should not exceed 10 pages. Papers longer than 10 pages risk rejection without consideration of their merits.

IMPORTANT DATES 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.
