Subject: Announcement: IME 2005, Québec

Dear colleague,

The École d'actuariat of Université Laval will host the 9th
International Congress on Insurance: Mathematics and Economics on July
6-8, 2005. The Congress will feature invited talks by Andrew Cairns
(Heriot-Watt University, Scotland), Jan Dhaene (Katholieke
Universiteit Leuven, Belgium) and Gordon Willmot (University of
Waterloo, Canada).

Prior to the Congress, the École d'actuariat also hosts two days of
Short Courses of six hours each on two different topics. In one
course, Jan Beirlant (Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Belgium) will
speak on "Extreme Value Analysis and Applications to Reinsurance". In
the other course, Gordon Willmot (University of Waterloo, Canada)
will speak on the "Analysis of the Insurer's Surplus and Related
Quantities". These courses should appeal to researchers and
practitioners alike.

Over the past eight years, the IME Congress has established itself as
one of the main actuarial conferences worldwide. The Congress provides
researchers --- actuaries and non-actuaries --- with the opportunity
to present their latest work in the general area of Actuarial Science.
Topics covered are relevant to the aims and scope of the
international journal "Insurance: Mathematics and Economics". More
information is available in the attached Call for Papers.

In 2005, the Congress and Short Courses will be held in historic
Québec during the lively International Summer Festival. The old
quarter of Québec was declared a world heritage site by UNESCO in
1985. This is the only fortified city in North America. The host of
the Congress, École d'actuariat, distinguishes itself by its
comprehensive specialized degree in Actuarial Science. The ten Faculty
members are active in fields of Actuarial Science such as Risk Theory,
Life and Non-Life Insurance, and Pension Mathematics. The École
d'actuariat also hosted the 36th Actuarial Research Conference in

For registration in the Congress and all related information, see the

We look forward to seeing you in Québec next summer!
