EAA e-Conference on Data Science & Data Ethics

29 June 2021, live & online
Organised by the EAA – European Actuarial Academy GmbH


The actuarial focus has changed significantly over the last couple of years. Computational power is increasing with exponential growth, in addition more and more data is available. This combination puts the actuarial profession into a position where a new understanding has to be developed on today‘s possibilities of actuarial science and its ethical implications. The new role of actuaries within big data and ongoing digitalisation is not yet fully defined. Best practice experience sharing and exchange of ideas is needed. The EAA is delighted to offer all interested actuaries and other experts a forum for knowledge exchange:

On 29 June 2021, the second EAA e-Conference on "Data Science & Data Ethics" will take place live and virtually. The programme will combine keynote speeches with food for thought from well-known experts and selected talks from professionals through a Call for Papers.

The Data Science & Data Ethics e-Conference is open to all actuaries and other interested experts. You can book your ticket here on the EAA website.
