AMW 2016



The Alberto Mendelzon Workshop (AMW) is an initiative of the Latin American community of researchers in data management, to which our friend, colleague and mentor Alberto so greatly contributed. This event is held annually since 2006, and it aims to create opportunities for dissemination and exchange of research results from globally produced investigations, encouraging participants to propose innovative and technological developments. By these means we seek to honor the memory of Alberto and increment and solidify the research in the region. 



The 10th edition will be held in Panama City, Panama from June 6th to 10th 2016. As per its past editions, AMW encourages the participation of Latin American graduate and undergraduate students, and features activities designed for them, including the 4th AMW Summer School on Data Management held june 6th to 7th

The largest infrastructure project since the waterway’s original construction, the Panama Canal Expansion Program will create a new lane of traffic along the Canal through the construction of a new set of locks, increasing the waterway’s capacity. The new locks will have three chambers, water-saving basins, lateral filling and emptying system & rolling gates.




The AMW School is a two-day "Summer School" preceding the Alberto Mendelzon Workshop on Foundations of Data Management 2016 to be held in Panama City, Panama. The event consists of multiple three-hour tutorials aimed at a mixed audience of students and other interested attendees. 


The high-level goals of the AMW School are two-fold:

1. Host tutorials targeted at students (advanced undergraduate or postgraduate level) or other early-

term researchers interested in the area of Data Management;

2. Provide a venue where young Latin American students and researchers can meet, discuss, learn, and seek feedback on their research topics, thus reinforcing research networks (of the future) in the area.


Additionally, this year the school will include several introductory level courses taught in Spanish that are meant as an invitation to local students and researchers from other areas to join the database community and researchers of the Data Management area.
