In February 2017, the ICA 2018 has published its Call for Papers for the congress program. The ICA 2018 will be held from 4 to 8 June 2018 in Berlin. With an expected 2,000 participating experts from all over the world, the ICA 2018 is considered to be one of the leading international conferences for actuarial science and mathematical finance.
The Scientific Committee of the ICA 2018 has identified a broad range of main topics and corresponding subtopics. The main topics for the ICA 2018 include theoretical and practical issues, innovative approaches and day-to-day problems. Apart from section-specific topics, the list of topics also includes joint sessions covering cross-section topics. Further topics not included in the list may also be considered.
Actuaries, scientists or practitioners interested to present their results in 2018 at the ICA 2018 can hand in their abstract until 31 July 2017.
The submission is possible via the easy-to-understand online submission tool.
The application has to include
- an abstract of maximum 300 words,
- a description of the practical value of the submitted proposal and
- an overview of related literature or other used sources.
There is no need to submit a written paper as the basis for your talk or presentation. The complete submission process will take approximately 20 minutes.
In total, the congress program will feature 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. Up to 11 parallel lecture halls with a capacity of 60 to 750 participants allow the discussion of interdisciplinary issues as well as expert topics.
ICA participants wishing to be considered for the ICA 2018 Best Paper Awards or the IAA Section Best paper Awards should submit, in addition to the regular abstract submission, a full paper of their results. Those applications will automatically enter the review process for the Best Paper Awards.
