AMW 2013

The AMW has been a periodical Latin American-based, but international venue for high-level research mainly in the foundational aspects of the area. This year it will be held in Puebla/Cholula, Mexico, during May 21-23, 2013, and locally organized by the Benemerita Universidad Autonoma de Puebla (BUAP) and the Universidad de las Americas Puebla (UDLAP). Previous editions were in Laguna San Rafael, Chile (2006); Punta del Este, Uruguay (2007); Arequipa, Peru (2009); Buenos Aires, Argentina, (2010); Santiago, Chile (2011); and Ouro Preto, Brazil (2012). The event encourages the participation of Latin American graduate students and organizes some activities specially designed for them.

The Alberto Mendelzon Workshop is an initiative of the Latin American community of researchers in data management, to which our friend, colleague and mentor Alberto so greatly contributed. It is a Latin America-based venue for research in the fundamental aspects of the area, by which we seek to honor the memory of Alberto and increment and solidify the research in the region.

This event encourages the participation of Latin American graduate students and develops specially designed activities for them.


As some of you may already know, the Popocatepetl volcano which is close to Puebla has increased its activity this last week (CENAPRED).

The volcano has been active since 1994 and in conversations with the Mexican organizers we've been told that last years the situation was similar and nothing happened. We want to let you know that we are monitoring the situation and we will let you know if actions are needed.

If you have any questions or concerns please let us know.
