it might be a robot trying some known security holes randomly

Is this URL familiar to you? /conference_proceedings/2005/forensics.....
If yes, be sure the corresponding software is up to date.
If not, you don't care, it's trying old security holes I guess (2005)

*and*, you might want to block this IP in your firewall if it bothers you too much

It seems to come from an infected computer in brazil, you might contact their "abuse" email contact abuse@locaweb.com.br
The IP points to hm1099.locaweb.com.br
