The Risk Theory Society is a group of economists, financial economists, and actuaries who undertake theoretical and applied research in the areas of insurance economics, financial economics related to insurance markets, actuarial science, and more generally in the economic analysis of risk and uncertainty. Membership in the society is earned by presenting a paper at the annual seminar and forfeited by missing two consecutive meetings.
The society invites interested parties to submit papers for the 2013 meeting. Each paper accepted for the meeting is given one hour and fifteen minutes for presentation and defense by the authors. The first twenty minutes of that time are reserved to be free of interruption other than for questions of clarification. After the grace period, discussion is typically vigorous.
Over the past 5 years, the number of submissions ranged from 42 to 60 with an average of 51. Ten papers were selected each year. Although we accept submission of a five-page abstract, most submissions and most accepted papers were in full draft or essentially completed form.
Submissions are due on December 15, 2012. The program committee will notify authors of accepted papers by January 18, 2013, or soon thereafter. Accepted papers must be completed and sent for posting on the Risk Theory Society web page by March 1, 2013. Financial support for travel (North American portion only) for one author per paper is sometimes available.
Submissions should be e-mailed as attachments in the Adobe Portable Document Format (pdf) by December 15, 2012, to:
Professor Lars Powell
Secretary of the Risk Theory Society
