Collocated with "The 7th Alberto Mendelzon International WS of Foundations of Data Management", (May 21-23, 2013, Puebla/Cholula, Mexico,

We invite all undergraduate and graduate students interested on the foundational aspects of Data Management and the Web - and, very specially, those from Latin America - to attend the AMW School 2013.
In 2012, AMW offered a day dedicated to students, which was called the Student Session. For 2013, AMW is going to host the first edition of AMW School, a two day event dedicated to a panel and three tutorials:
  • Magdalena Ortiz (Technische Universitaet Wien, Austria): "Reasoning and Query Answering in Description Logics"
  • Mauricio Osorio (Universidad de Las Americas Puebla, Mexico): "Answer set programming and databases"
  • Ana Carolina Salgado (Universidade Federale de Pernambuco, Brazil): "Data integration systems and the Semantic Web"

Students interested in participating please register by sending a message to Pablo Barcelo ( and Mirella Moro (


The school will also have an associated session for student posters to be held during the AMW Workshop (this is a voluntary event: AMW school participants are encouraged but not forced to participate). We solicit poster submissions on the topics of interest for the AMW School. The goal of the poster session is to provide the students with an opportunity to present their research ideas, receive feedback from and interact with senior members of the community.


The Student Poster Session invites poster submissions of graduate on-going work. The reviewers will evaluate: the potential of developing high-quality dissertation/thesis, how much of the work is already done, and the potential for creating interesting discussions during the student session.
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. The length should not exceed 4 (four) pages. Papers longer than 4 pages risk rejection without consideration of their merits. The main author of the paper must be a graduate student, who must attend the AMW School to present the work.
The proceedings will be published in electronic format as a CEUR Workshop Proceedings ( Submissions must be sent to the chairs of the AMW school: Pablo Barcelo ( and Mirella Moro (
