Call for Abstracts: 57th Actuarial Research Conference, August 3-6, 2022

The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign is proud to host one of the premiere international academic conferences in the actuarial community — the 57th Actuarial Research Conference (ARC). The 57th ARC is going to take place between August 4 and 6, with a reception on August 3, 2022. Please mark your calendar for this exciting event!

The ARC provides an annual opportunity for academics and practitioners to meet and discuss actuarial problems and their solutions. The conference is the central meeting point in North America for academics, researchers and practitioners from all over the continent and the world to gather and address all aspects of actuarial science. The ARC promotes all topics in education, research and industry engagements.

The 57th ARC will bring together experts in all areas of insurance and actuarial science. To promote industry and research collaborations, only in-person sessions are planned for this conference. Social events such as a banquet with a music performance and guided tours to the University of Illinois botanic gardens and the Japan House are planned for conference attendees and their significant others.

All researchers, practitioners, and students* working in Actuarial Science and related areas are invited to submit a proposal for presentation at the 57th Actuarial Research Conference. All in-person presentations will be recorded and made available on-demand to registered participants after the conference.
