Georgia State University
Atlanta, GA

The Department of Risk Management & Insurance of the J. Mack Robinson College of Business at Georgia State University is pleased to host ARC 2017, the 52nd Actuarial Research Conference.

Actuarial Research at the Crossroads: Transcending Disciplines

Due to the department's history in actuarial education and risk orientation, we are proud to host ARC 2017. The actuarial profession has become more challenging due to data increase, global trends in climate, interest rates at or below the zero bound, changing regulatory frameworks, etc. By facing these challenges and turning them into opportunities, the actuarial education and research industry will be able to expand the scope of methods within the actuarial toolkit to address future research developments.

ARC 2017 will be a venue for actuarial educators, practitioners and researchers interested in the latest in research development and to exchange ideas and learn from each other.

The conference will take place at Georgia State University's Student Center. Located in the heart of Atlanta, Georgia. ARC 2017 will provide generous space for presentations, meals and breaks. The social program includes the welcome reception at the Center for Civil and Human Rights and the conference dinner at the Georgia Aquarium.
