Since 2006, the Alberto Mendelzon International Workshop on Foundation of Databases and the Web (AMW) brings together top researchers from all over the world, creating the opportunity to discuss and spread research results.

The co-located AMW Summer School provides an opportunity for Latin American students (graduate and undergraduate), researchers, and practitioners, to interact with the international data management academic community. AMW is a way to honour the memory of Alberto Mendelzon, by promoting research ties with Latin America.
