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.
The workshop is taking place from June 27th to 30th at the Solar do Rosario Hotel, in Ouro Preto, Brazil.
The event already started! Our hashtag is #AMWBrazil
