Call for Papers - Singapore Actuarial Conference International

The Singapore Actuarial Society will be holding the Singapore Actuarial Conference (“SAC”) in the week of  22 – 26 November 2021. The format of the conference will be either fully virtual or in hybrid format with limited in-person attendance, depending on the prevailing public health guidelines. In either scenario, we expect overseas attendees to be able to effectively participate via virtual means. Given the great value from international collaboration noted in the course of activities such as the Asian Actuarial Conference, International Committee seminars across Asia and IAA get-together, the SAC organising committee has tentatively set aside 25 November to be “International Day” whereby the SAC are looking to curate a range of insightful speakers to bring a perspective from outside Singapore. The presentations need not be country-specific but rather the purpose is to facilitate greater engagement and collaboration.

 We are now accepting papers to be presented at the conference.

 Do you have any unique insights on these subjects – share them with the broader community.

Cyber hacking is on the rise, cryptocurrencies are in fashion, tackling climate change is back on the discussion table, mRNA technology may have just saved the planet, and the use of algorithms is becoming more mainstream in insurance. Bring forth your view of how these and other global trends will affect the actuarial world.

And of course, no event in current times is complete without considering the impact of COVID-19. Do you know how companies adapted their selling practices in response to COVID? Do you know which segments incurred significant losses or, perhaps, benefitted as the pandemic engulfed the world? The business titans of the world are hotly debating the future of work – what is your view? And do you have frameworks for making decisions in such an uncertain environment that could be helpful for our community?

Please submit your papers using the following link by 23 August 2021, indicating that the presentation is part of International Day.
