From 10 to 12 July 2019, the Technical University of Munich (TUM) in cooperation with the ERGO Center of Excellence will host the 23rd International Congress on Insurance: Mathematics and Economics (IME 2019) in Munich. The IME is one of the best-known events in actuarial mathematics. It brings together researchers and practitioners who share the latest developments and ideas in actuarial science. The congress is connected to Insurance: Mathematics and Economics, one of the leading actuarial journals.
From 16 July you can find more than 30 recordings from the IME program online on actuview:
About TUM, ERGO Center of Excellence in Insurance and DGVFM
Department of Mathematics of the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has different research groups working on financial mathematics using a wide repertoire of methods from stochastics, statistics, numerics, optimization, function theory und functional analysis. The department is very well connected to the finance industry. Furthermore, they play a leading role in the Masters Degree Program "Mathematical Finance and Actuarial Science", as well as in the joint Elite Masters Program "Finance and Information Management" (FIM) at the TUM, the University of Augsburg and the University of Bayreuth.
The ERGO Center of Excellence in Insurance is an innovative research center established by the Technical University of Munich and ERGO, one of the major insurance groups in Germany and Europe. It aims to scientifcally analyze current insurance industry topics and develop and implement new solutions, and to advance the practice of financial and actuarial mathematics as well as risk management.
The German Society for Actuarial and Financial Mathematics (DGVFM) coordinates the mathematical research activities in Germany that are related to applications in the insurance business. It attracts students to the field of actuarial sciences and helps young researchers to build up their academic network. The DGVFM section particularly aims at giving young and promising German researchers the opportunity to present their research at an international top conference, but also to let established researchers from academia and industry present actuarial research.
