IME 2017 - General Information

The 21st International Congress on Insurance: Mathematics and Economics (IME 2017), scheduled July 3-5 2017, is one of the largest international meeting series in actuarial science.
The aim of the conference is "to strengthen communication between individuals and groups who produce and apply research results in insurance and finance, aiming to integrate the currently fragmented research in both fields".

The conference deliberations will be on the following themes:

  • Life Insurance;
  • Non-Life Insurance;
  • Reinsurance and Other Risk-Sharing Arrangements;
  • Risk Management;
  • Financial Modeling.

In the framework of the Panel Discussion (July 3, 2017) with the topic "Ultra-low interest rates in insurance business" we offer the conference participants a platform for discussions with a number of renowned experts.

The IME Educational Workshop (July 6-7, 2017) is a satellite event of the IME 2017, aimed at both academics and practitioners and providing a general overview over the past and current research results and their practical applications.

The topics of the workshop are:

  • Life Insurance,
  • Non-Life Insurance,
  • Claims Reserving Methods,
  • Computational Actuarial Science with R.
