Perspectives on financial and actuarial modelling

June 7,  2016 - University of Salerno, Fisciano Campus  
Satellite Workshop of the
48th Scientific Meeting of the Italian Statistical Society  (SIS)

The workshop

The workshop aims at promoting the scientific debate on the application of advanced mathematical and statistical models to solve relevant financial and actuarial problems. The approach is interdisciplinary since we encourage contributions and attendance from researchers and practitioners involved in different fields including actuarial sciences, statistics, data science, finance, financial econometrics. The programme will include 8 keynote invited talks as well a contributed poster session.
