The Banff International Research Station will host the "Emerging Insights in Insurance Statistics" workshop in Banff from January 16 - 21, 2022.

Insurance statistics is the science that involves the analysis and interpretation of data that are used in the insurance and related financial industries. Insurance is in the business of providing us protections against unforeseen events that can have significant financial consequences. It is an industry that is useful for driving economic growth, and research related to insurance statistics continues to be useful to provide the industry with tools, models, and results meaningful for decision making by all parties affected by the industry. Insurance statistics is inter-disciplinary, combining theories and applications derived from mathematics, statistics, computer science, and data science. The growth in research in such related disciplines, the access and volumes of data available, and the changing landscape of the insurance industry are enhancing the research progress. This workshop brings together experts in this growing discipline to provide a unique opportunity and a place to discuss and debate on ongoing research development and emerging issues in insurance statistics. It also intends to train young scholars interested in insurance statistics and to unlock problems that may lead to further research work.

The Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS) is a collaborative Canada-US-Mexico venture that provides an environment for creative interaction as well as the exchange of ideas, knowledge, and methods within the Mathematical Sciences, with related disciplines and with industry. The research station is located at The Banff Centre in Alberta and is supported by Canada's Natural Science and Engineering Research Council (NSERC), the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF), Alberta's Advanced Education and Technology, and Mexico's Consejo Nacional de Ciencia y Tecnología (CONACYT).
