The journal Risks has launched a Special Issue for papers from The Sixth International Gerber-Shiu Workshop and The Third International Workshop on Statistical Modeling of Heavy-Tail Phenomena with Applications.
The International Gerber-Shiu Workshop has been held biennially since 2006 and has become an important platform for exchanging research ideas and disseminating recent advances in risk theory and related fields. The Sixth International Gerber-Shiu Workshop, hosted by Renmin University of China, will be held on June 8–9, 2016, and is open to academic researchers and industry practitioners from all over the world. Topics of the workshop range from recent theoretical and methodological developments in risk theory and related fields to novel applications in insurance, finance, and risk management. Keynote speakers are Hansjörg Albrecher (University of Lausanne), Søren Asmussen (Aarhus University), Sergey Foss (Heriot-Watt University), Jose Garrido (Concordia University), Dmitry Korshunov (Lancaster University), Elias S. W. Shiu (University of Iowa), and Hailiang Yang (University of Hong Kong).
Heavy-tail phenomena exist everywhere and often express themselves in the form of natural or man-made catastrophes. They have attracted much attention from academics and practitioners in finance, insurance, information science, and environmental science. The Third International Workshop on Statistical Modeling of Heavy-Tail Phenomena with Applications, hosted by Zhejiang Gongshang University will be held on June 4–5, 2016, and will be attended by a gathering of researchers in related fields from all over the world. Keynote speakers are Hansjörg Albrecher (University of Lausanne), Søren Asmussen (Aarhus University), Sergey Foss (Heriot-Watt University), Dmitry Korshunov (Lancaster University), Qihe Tang (University of Iowa), and Yuebao Wang (Soochow University).
We invite all participants to submit their manuscripts presented at these two workshops to this Special Issue for peer-review and processing prior to publication in the online journal, Risks.
