Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

PARTY is a Winter School targeted to young researchers (PhD students and researchers, academics, practitioners within five years after receiving their PhD) working on current actuarial science topics. Its third edition is held in Ascona, Switzerland, 8–13 January, 2017, see www.unil.ch/party2017.

PARTY stands for Perspectives in Actuarial Risks in Talks of Young researchers and the 2017 edition focuses on two main areas of research of today's insurance risks:

Ageing and Risk management

The challenges and risks arising from an ageing society should not be underestimated. Actuaries are experts in the management of risks, in the development of risk assessment and management tools, very often in an independent way. Their independent approaches need to be combined with other disciplines to better answer the questions related to our ageing society.

We invite young researchers across disciplines, such as actuarial science, demography, insurance, mathematics, statistics, epidemiology, biology, economics, to PARTY, where they can present and freely discuss their most relevant questions in their specific fields. Invited experts from academia and practice will be available for feedback and will provide opening and closing remarks.

We welcome all participants to submit their manuscripts presented at the conference to this Special Issue. All manuscripts will be refereed through the standard peer-review process of the journal.

Prof. Séverine Arnold and Corina Constantinescu
