NEWS:

This event will explore the determinants of mortality and longevity, projecting their future course, and managing the uncertainties.

The symposium will take place 13-14 September, at The University of Warwick.

It will provide an update on the latest thinking across the associated disciplines, a multi-disciplinary forum for the exchange of information on the latest relevant research, and also an opportunity to learn about established knowledge from a range of different disciplines, all with an interest in better understanding and managing this complex yet critical subject.

The event is aimed at all actuaries who are concerned with pricing or reserving for mortality and longevity, underwriters, demographers, epidemiologists, policy-makers, gerontologists, other medical researchers, and all those with an interest in better understanding the determinants of mortality and longevity, projecting their future course, and managing the uncertainties.
