The ICA 2018 formula! – How would you best describe ICA 2018 in a mathematical way?


The ICA 2018 is considered to be one of the leading international conferences for actuarial science and mathematical finance. What better way to emphasize this claim than with a mathematical formula resulting in “2018”? That is the challenge of “My ICA 2018 formula”!


The „My ICA 2018 Formula Challenge has now ended! Make sure to vote for your favorite ICA-Formula of 2018, which will be displayed at the ICA 2018 in Berlin. 


The aim was to collect as many different formulae equal to “2018” as possible. We have received many different formulae from various places in the world. The requirements were that the formula is – of course – mathematically correct and somehow personalized e.g. through headings “Mary’s lemma of theoretical exactness”, “Peter’s formula of universal interchange” or “The theorem for a successful actuarial get-together”.


Have a look at all the submitted formulae and vote for your favorite one. The voting takes place anonymously. Just click on the creator’s name, fill in the CAPTCHA and vote!

Thank you to our main sponsor Zurich for supporting this challenge!
