Dear Colleagues,

It is our great pleasure to announce the new journal of the Belgian
Actuarial Society (KVBA-ARAB), the Belgian Actuarial Bulletin (BAB).

The BAB is sponsored by KVBA-ARAB and is thus available free of charge
from the website of the Belgian Society, at url


Click on literature, and then you switch to


where the BAB is hosted.

The aim of the BAB is to publish articles pertaining to the "art" and/or
"sciences" involved in contemporary actuarial practice. Papers written 
from any quantitative point of view - whether actuarial, 
statistical, financial, mathematical, etc. - attacking relevant
theoretical and applied insurance problems are welcome. 

The BAB welcomes articles providing new ideas or techniques, articles
improving existing ones as well as survey papers of pedagogical nature. 
Useful introduction or reviews of subjects new to many actuaries, or 
useful descriptions of present practice or possible future
practice are appreciated. Such introductions, reviews or descriptions 
should be couched in language accessible to actuaries.

We are eagerly looking forward to the pleasure of receiving your

Yours faithfully,
