The 4th Workshop on Insurance Mathematics With a Special Session on Longevity and Pension Risks

February 5 and 6, 2016.

Room: DC 1302
University of Waterloo
200 University Avenue West, Waterloo, Ontario, N2L 3G1, Canada


 
 

Objective

The primary aim of this workshop is to provide a venue for academics to meet and discuss their latest research topics in the broad area of insurance mathematics and its related disciplines (e.g. mathematical finance, applied probability and statistics, quantitative risk management). The workshop is intended to cover a broad scope of research interests in the general area of actuarial science.

As for the first three editions at UQAM (Montreal), University of Toronto (Toronto), and University of Laval (Quebec City), one of the main objectives of this workshop is to give the opportunity to the up-and-coming researchers in various local institutions (notably, Quebec and Ontario) to promote their research program and facilitate their integration into the actuarial academic community. Canada has been known for years to be a stronghold of the actuarial science profession with many high-profile academics among its ranks. The workshop also intends to stimulate interaction and scientific collaboration, and foster relations of an academic and professional nature among the actuarial science groups in notably the Quebec-Ontario area as well as outside of these two provinces.
