From 4 to 8 June 2018, the German Actuarial Association (DAV) in conjunction with the International Actuarial Association (IAA) will host the 31st International Congress of Actuaries in Berlin. With around 2,000 participating experts from all over the world, the ICA – which is held every 4 years– is considered to be the leading international conference for actuarial science and mathematical finance.
For first time in history, the traditional International Congress of Actuaries will be also enriched with virtual formats. From 4 May to 29 June 2018 the "Virtual ICA" – VICA 2018 – will give access to a broad variety of online formats ranging from web-based seminars, an insurance simulation game and live streaming from the conference.
The scientific program includes up to 11 parallel sessions with about 100 slots for the presentation of submitted papers. Each parallel session will last 90 or 120 minutes and contain a number of 30- to 45-minute talks. Actuaries, scientists and practitioners from around the world are encouraged to participate in shaping the program by submitting relevant, leading-edge ideas, research results and insights that will expand and grow the current body of actuarial knowledge.The Scientific Committee welcomes
innovative research from academia (actuarial science, finance, insurance, risk management, etc.),
papers written by national or international task forces and working parties as well as
papers by practitioners describing results related to practice or open problems that might benefit from further scientific analysis.
The ICA 2018 is held under the theme "Getting closer". Watch the ICA 2018 image video to get a first impression:
