The Second International Congress on Actuarial Science and Quantitative Finance (ICASQF 2016) calls for participation of researchers, educators, graduate students, and other professionals.  The contributions submitted to ICASQF 2016 can be academic research in actuarial science and quantitative finance (for students, faculty and practitioners).  Also, practitioners can present case studies or case analyzes.  An author may be the presenter of only one (1)  presentation.

Authors should submit abstracts of oral communications and posters in English. However, authors may choose to deliver your oral presentation in Spanish.

Authors should submit abstracts and extended abstracts (or full papers).  Abstracts of accepted oral presentations and posters would be published in the ICASQF 2016 Congress Programme book.   The refereeing process for oral presentations and posters are based on extended abstracts (or full papers) provided by authors.

Authors of selected oral presentations would be invited to submit to the special issue entitle “Actuarial Science and Quantitative Finance: ICASQF2016, Cartagena, Colombia,  June2016” of Springer Proceedings in Mathematics & Statistics (PROMS).   Invited papers would follow a standard refereeing process.    You can find the proceedings of the First edition of ICASQF here.

It should be taken into account the following guidelines, to fill up the submission form:

Title: It should have 256 characters maximum.

Abstract: it should have 3000 characters maximum. Abstracts should be written in English using LaTeX (2e); please do not use any other version of TeX. Authors should include any bibliographic reference. It is the author’s responsibility to submit a correct abstract. The book abstracts would contain any errors in spelling, grammar or scientific fact in the abstract text as typed by the author. In case an author believes that he or she must cite a reference source in an abstract, the full reference must be written parenthetically. For readability, we recommend avoiding formulae.

Authors: Include any authors. The primary contact is the presenting author, and he/she is responsible for sharing all the information regarding abstract submission, including notification with possible co-authors.

Subject Areas: Select the primary subject area. The organizers would try to organize the Congress within sessions of the same subject area. Any practitioner that wants to present a paper or poster in a practitioner session should choose the corresponding primary subject area.  If you are a speaker of an invited session, please choose as the subject area the appropriate session.

File Upload: Upload an extended abstract of your presentation or a full paper. The length of an extended abstract should not exceed two A4 pages (word count of approximately 1000-1200 words). The refereeing process for the selection of oral presentations and posters would be based on these extended abstracts.
