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 Data Science 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.

About AMW 2019 logo

Ñandutí: a Guarani word meaning "spider web" that is the name given to an embroidered lace of Paraguay. Its name comes from the ñandú (arachnid) that, with work and patience, makes a spider web similar to the design of the lace. The Ñandutí corresponds to one of the popular patterns of Paraguay based on ancient Spanish lace.
