CALL FOR PROPOSALS
The planning committee is seeking ideas for sessions that will deliver relevant content at the symposium. The theme of this year's event is Industry 4.0–Opportunities and Challenges. The committee is looking for seasoned and engaging speakers who are interested in sharing their expertise and delivering interactive sessions at the symposium. The committee is particularly interested in hot topics and non-traditional practices in areas such as life, health, pension, general insurance, finance, investment, ERM, predictive analytics, innovation technology, professionalism or soft skills, as well as other topics that appeal to actuaries practicing in the finance and insurance industries around the world, especially in Asia. Some potential topics are below:
· Pay-as-you-live for life and health insurance
-i.e., How to link customers' behaviours and lifestyle (e.g. regular exercise, a healthy number of daily footsteps, BMI) to better health outcomes and incorporate it in more dynamic pricing such that premiums can be adjusted to reflect the reduced risk
· Use of data analytics in life insurance–successes and continued challenges
· Health analytics and modelling
· Partnership with non-bank
· Future of health insurance
· Cutting-edge medical portfolio management in the region
· Next generation advances in medicine and impact on industry

· Using reinsurance as a tool to manage capital/balance sheet requirements
· Getting ready for finance transformation in the wave of IFRS 17
· Drivers of longevity risk pre- and post-retirement
-i.e., Any studies/findings/evidences on whether what drives the longevity risks are different between pre- and post-retirement
· Drivers of longevity–are mortality improvements slowing down?
· Long term care– risk factor and concerns
· Parametric insurance
· Future of car insurance after driverless cars
· Innovative investment products and managing these key risks
· The use of risk matrices and other tools to identify and quantify risk
· ORSA and its implication towards insurers
Others (e.g. soft skills, non-traditional roles, innovation, analytics, etc.)
· AI for claim processing and underwriting in insurance
-i.e., What we can learn from insurers who have implemented AI in their claim or underwriting process, how it is implemented and the increase in efficiency benefited by the insurers and their customers
