The First International Congress on Actuarial Science and Quantitative Finance is going to be held in Bogotá, Colombia from June 17 to June 20 of 2014. It is organized by Universidad Nacional de Colombia (the main public university in Colombia). It is hoped that this event would become a periodic event every 2 years and that It would become the referent in Actuarial Science and Quantitative Finance in Colombia, the Andean Region (Peru, Colombia, Venezuela, Ecuador and Bolivia) and the Caribbean Region with researches from different parts of the world. It is expected to contribute to enhance academic and industrial relations between academic and industrial communities from Colombia and the Andean Region with the communities from North America and the rest of the world.
The emphasis of the event is equally distributed between finance and actuarial science. We expect that this make use of space for debates in this areas and topics such as teaching, research, technical regulation and business practice in Andean and Caribbean regions, and its inter-relation with the rest of the world.
The congress will cover a variety of topics in Actuarial Science and Quantitative Finance, such as statistics techniques in Finance and Actuarial Science, Portfolio Management, Derivative Valuation, Risk theory and Life and Pension Insurance Mathematics, Non-Life Insurance Mathematics, and Economics of Insurance among others.
The event would consist of plenary sessions of invited speakers in the areas of actuarial science and quantitative finance, oral sessions of contributed talks in quantitative finance, oral sessions of contributed talks in actuarial science and poster sessions. A day of the congress would be dedicated to practitioners and all the talks for the given day would be delivered by practitioners.
