The ICA 2018 formula! – How would you best describe the 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 aim is to collect as many different formulae equal to “2018” as possible. In order to achieve this goal, we would like to challenge you to participate and send us your personal formula.

The only requirements are that your formula is – of course – mathematically correct and is somehow personalized by you, 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 the first submitted entries for the ICA 2018 formula to get some food for thought:



In the end, all correct formulae will be announced on the ICA 2018 website and in the upcoming newsletter. Moreover, participants can decide and vote which formula might be presented at the ICA 2018 in Berlin – Have fun puzzling!

Contribute your personal and creative “2018 formula”. Send your submission to We are looking forward to your submission!
