General information

The International Cramér Symposium on Insurance Mathematics will be held at Stockholm University on 11-14 June, 2013.

The symposium is organised by the Department of Mathematics (Institute of Insurance Mathematics and Mathematical Statistics) at Stockholm University in cooperation with the Scandinavian Actuarial Journal. Participation in the symposium is open to researchers, students, practitioners in business and industry and other specialists from all countries.

The symposium is dedicated to the memory of the outstanding Swedish mathematician, Harald Cramér, the former Vice-Chancellor of Stockholm University, and the head of the Institute of Insurance Mathematics and Mathematical Statistics at Stockholm University founded by him in 1929.

The symposium will also mark the centenary of the Scandinavian Actuarial Journal. Harald Cramér was for many years the Editor-in-Chief of this journal.

The International Cramér Symposium on Insurance Mathematics will be organized as a high level scientific forum, where innovative results, new ideas and problems in the area of insurance mathematics will be presented and discussed. The symposium intends to stimulate cooperation between academic research groups and people from the insurance business in the area of insurance mathematics; to promote further development of graduate and postgraduate actuarial education; to update and to spread knowledge about the history of insurance mathematics; and to discuss the future development of insurance mathematics.

The main topics of the symposium are:

  • Modern risk theory and its applications
  • Stochastic modeling of insurance business in the Solvency II framework
  • Modern mathematical problems in non-life insurance
  • New mathematical problems in life insurance
  • Mathematical background for new products in insurance and reinsurance
  • Actuarial statistics and actuarial software
  • Modern trends in actuarial education
  • History and future prospective of insurance mathematics
The programme of the conference will include plenary invited lectures (45 minutes each) and communications (20 minutes each). The working language is English.

The venue for the symposium will be Stockholm University, Kräftriket campus (Map here ), Houses 3, 5 and 6.
