Special Issue "Selected Papers from the Actuarial Risk Modelling and Extreme Values Workshop"
A special issue of Risks (ISSN 2227-9091).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 March 2019
Actuaries face many challenges today, especially relating to such topical issues as the analysis of extremely large data sets and high-dimensional data on the one hand, through to risks of extreme events, increased longevity, and mortality modelling and forecasting at extreme ages, on the other. These challenges are highly relevant for today's insurance industry, bringing imperatives and incentives for researchers to develop new tools for risk modelling and risk management.
The Research School of Finance, Actuarial Studies and Statistics, College of Business and Economics, Australian National University, is convening a two-day workshop on the 6th and 7th September 2018 with the intention of bringing together experts in these areas from different disciplines to present up-to-date reviews and overviews of their subjects. The workshop will provide a unique opportunity for academics and practitioners to meet and discuss these important actuarial problems and their solutions. For more details, please refer to the workshop webpage: https://www.rsfas.anu.edu.au/rsfas-research/workshop-series/.
We welcome all participants to submit their manuscripts presented at the workshop to this special issue. All manuscripts will be refereed through the same peer-review process of the journal Risks.
