In 2018, the German Actuarial Association, in conjunction with the International Actuarial Association, will be hosting the 31st International Congress of Actuaries in Germany. The congress will be held from 4 – 8 June 2018 in Berlin, the vibrant and historic capital of Germany. Around 2,000 actuaries, academics and high-ranking representatives from the international insurance and financial industry as well as related institutions are expected to join the conference.

 

The main part of the ICA 2018 will be the scientific program, including over one hundred sessions geared towards actuaries, academics, scientists and practitioners from all over the world who share an interest in actuarial topics in insurance and finance. For this event, the Scientific Committee has identified a wide range of regional and international actuarial topics and related subtopics. The main scientific topics for the ICA 2018 are related to eight different special-interest sections, reflecting the structure of the IAA Sections:

 

  • AFIR/ERM (Financial Risk & ERM)
  • ASTIN (Non-Life)
  • IAAHS (Health)
  • IAALS (Life)
  • PBSS (Pensions Benefits & Social Security)
  • IACA (Consulting)
  • Professionalism
  • Education
