Registration for the 2014 'R in Insurance' conference has opened

The registration for the second conference on R in Insurance on Monday 14 July 2014 at Cass Business School in London has opened.

This one-day conference will focus again on applications in insurance and actuarial science that use R, the lingua franca for statistical computation. Topics covered may include actuarial statistics, capital modelling, pricing, reserving, reinsurance and extreme events, portfolio allocation, advanced risk tools, high-performance computing, econometrics and more. All topics will be discussed within the context of using R as a primary tool for insurance risk management, analysis and modelling.

The intended audience of the conference includes both academics and practitioners who are active or interested in the applications of R in insurance.

Invited talks will be given by:
  • Arthur Charpentier, Département de mathématiques Université du Québec à Montréal
  • Montserrat Guillen, Dept. Econometrics University of Barcelona together with Leo Guelman, Royal Bank of Canada (RBC Insurance division)

Attendance of the whole conference is the equivalent of 6.5 hours of CPD for members of the Actuarial Profession.

We invite you to submit a one-page abstract for consideration. Both academic and practitioner proposals related to R are encouraged. The submission deadline for abstracts is 28 March 2014.

Details about the registration and abstract submission are given on the dedicated R in Insurance page at Cass Business School.


The organisers, Andreas Tsanakas and Markus Gesmann, gratefully acknowledge the sponsorship of Mango Solutions, Cybaea, PwC and RStudio.

Last year’s programme, abstracts and talks are available online.
