The scientific programm of the ICA 2018 includes up to 11 parallel sessions with about 100 slots for the presentation of submitted papers. Each parallel session will last 90 or 120 minutes and will contain a number of 30- to 45-minute talks. Actuaries, scientists and practitioners from around the world are encouraged to participate in shaping the program by submitting relevant, leading-edge ideas, research results and insights that will expand and grow the current body of actuarial knowledge.
